It was my pleasure on Friday 30th September 2016 to be presented with a cheque for £500 from Persimmon Homes. Each month every region where Persimmon's has a main office, local charities are able to apply for an award up to £1000 and out of all the applicants two charities are nominated. The scheme is known as the Persimmon Homes Community Champions. Our vice chairman, Pam Randell applied on our behalf back in April and in September her application was successful and we were one of the local lucky nominees! At the presentation I attempted to stress the useful work and support we endeavour to do in our local community and at the James Paget Hospital and hopefully the information I gave will further advance our standing and recognition. We must all thank Pam for her tireless money raising schemes and street collections which all help to keep us buoyant and able to continue our good work. Thanks Pam

Michael is a heart failure nurse specialist and has completed an Advanced Life Support Provider course and wishes to use the bursary to complete a two day instructor's course which will enable him to assist with health care and professional training at the JPH and also provide a high standard of recognised teaching in the local community generally.

It was my great pleasure at our first meeting to be held at the Hotel Victoria to present General Manager, Adam Greenfield, with a hand held defibrillator. It was obviously well received on behalf of the Hotel and will be kept in the reception area of the Hotel and therefore will be easily accessible if it is ever required.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Adam and his staff for making Heartcare feel very welcome at our inaugural meeting in the function room and we look forward to a pleasant, friendly, working relationship for the future.

Earlier this year, the committee received a request for a defibrillator for the Kirkley and Pakefield football club which is situated in Walmer Road Lowestoft. The defibrillator is now in place on the outside wall of the club house and readily available, if needed, to all club house users ranging from toddlers to the over 60's walking football group! It is also a useful piece of equipment for the local community as a public footpath runs past the club house. Many thanks to all members for your unfailing support in all we aim to do.
