BHF runners bolt in the sun to raise £30,000

More than 800 people turned out in the brilliant sunshine on Sunday to take part in the BHF's 10km Blenheim Bolt, which raised approximately £30,00 for us.

Margaret Morley walked the course after having surgery to replace a heart valve just over a year ago.

This time last year, 70 year old Margaret could walk no more than 50 yards. She said: "The British Heart Foundation have given me my life back...since I got the new valve I'm much better."

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Blenheim Bolt and thank you for your support!

The Bolt was won by Oxford University graduate Tucker Murphy.
