    We were overwhelmed by how much money was raised at dad's funeral collection. He had a triple heart bypass at 59 and was always grateful to the BHF.

Celebration of Life

On Saturday 7 December we held our fifth annual Celebration of Life event at St Marylebone Parish Church in London.

This service was a chance to join with our supporters in remembering and celebrating the lives of those that have been lost. With an introduction from our Chief Executive, Simon Gillespie, we sang and listened to carols from the wonderful St Marylebone Parish Choir. There were moving speeches by Sharon Gosal, a Gift of Hope fund holder, and Dr Amer Rana, a Lecturer in Regenerative Medicine, as well as a touching candle lighting moment.
