One of our presenters, Nick Franklin, is undertaking a massive fundraising effort during the early part of August in memory of his late father.
Nick’s father Graham died of a heart attack on October 7, 2009. It was a very unexpected and massive shock to the whole family.
Graham was a very fit and healthy man in his early 50s who didn’t smoke or drink. He had a healthy diet and was reasonably fit, managing a round of golf or running the line at football with no problems.
Since 2009 Nick and his family have raised just under £5000 for the British Heart Fo,undation – a fantastic charity doing vital research to reduce the number of fatalities from heart disease, something which touches so many families.
The first weekend in August Nick did the daunting Three Peaks Challenge which involves walking the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours.
So far he has raised almost £2,000. Please can we all try and help Nick reach his target of £3,000.
Donations are much appreciated and you can donate online at: www.justgiving.com/nickfranklin25
