A special thank you

Leanne Hughes has contacted us to say a massive thank you to her brother Andrew Naylor for completing the London to Brighton Bike Ride.

Three years ago Andrew,32, vowed to do something for the BHF when his nephew (Leanne’s son) Iwan was seriously ill in intensive care. Iwan was born with two congenital heart conditions - tetralogy of fallots and absent pulmonary valve syndrome - and aged just three months old he suffered a stroke.

Fortunately Iwan pulled through and following an operation six months later has gone from strength to strength.

When Andrew, who lives in Birmingham, was given the opportunity to take part in the L2B with his work colleagues at the ISS Group he jumped at the chance of fulfilling the pledge he had made at Iwan’s bedside.

Leanne said: “The whole family is so proud of Andrew for taking part. He has raised more than £450 on Iwan’s behalf which is fantastic. I just want to say thank you so much to Andrew and well done.”
