"When I decided to challenge myself with the 500 mile walk I knew that I wanted to raise some money for charity. I am humbled by the generosity of the people who sponsored me and have raised about £5000 for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland and couldn’t believe the support available by the charity!"
"I was overwhelmed with the support we received from the local community. CHSS is a charity very close to my heart. Without the support of my fantastic Stroke Nurse I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today. She really helped me rebuild my life after stroke."
"Knowing that this will be helping CHSS to support those affected by heart disease and strokes makes this journey an easy one to embark on. In 2013, my very dear aunt passed away in hospital unexpectedly due to heart and stroke complications. In 2015, my mother suffered a stroke from which she never recovered, and then in 2016 my father suffered a haemorrhagic stroke. Through hard work and support in hospital and the community, he recovered. I knew I wanted to help those affected by heart disease and stroke in some way, so as a keen touring cyclist, I set myself this challenge."
"Hearing how the funds will be used is amazing and has inspired me to try raise more money! Such an important charity close to my heart and with working for the ambulance service I see these illnesses every day and it inspires me even more to raise funds!"
"I was quite surprised by the support I got from CHSS, I never really considered it or thought you would be able to help so much. I came away with a lot more knowledge of the charity and the conditions you tackle. I got a really positive feeling about CHSS and will be happy to contribute to your collection jars whenever I see them, knowing it’s going to a great place."
“Because of you, I am not alone.”
Michelle and her mum both had strokes within days of each other. Michelle survived, but tragically her mum didn’t.
“I sat in the hospital bed struggling to move or speak, trapped in the pain and absolute grief of losing my mum.”
When she came home from hospital, Michelle felt completely alone.
But thanks to amazing donations from fundraising superheroes like you, Michelle got the practical and emotional support she really needed from our support worker Claire.
“Claire is one of the most important people in my life right now. Like my mum, Claire is someone I will never forget. She makes my life worth living and her kindness saved me.
“Your donations fund Claire’s work. Because of you, I am not alone.”
