Clementine's story

"When I was in secondary school, my form tutor had a sudden heart attack at 49, leaving the whole school feeling shocked and devastated. I wanted to get involved with the BHF, as they are working to help reduce the amount of people affected by heart conditions.

I'm now studying event management at Huddersfield University. I volunteer on a regular basis as a Senior Student Ambassador and I'm long-standing volunteer for Girl Guides. I have been volunteering for the British Heart Foundation events team to gain more experience. It's so rewarding to be involved and help assist on event day at such amazing events."
