That’s Peter Jemmett’s story in short but the longer version, a blog that chronicles his heart attack and rehabilitation is truly inspirational and you can read it at We’re sure you’ll find it interesting and Peter’s experience will no doubt seem very familiar to many of you. The response to the blog from cardiac patients has been extremely positive, as you can see from the quote. 

Peter went through the Active Hearts programme and has become one of Hearts & Souls’ top fundraisers. Such is his recovery that he is going to do the Ridge Off Roader 10K Run on Sunday May 19th 2019. This is a challenging mixed terrain, mainly off road race, that starts in Bledlow Ridge and wends its way through the Chilterns including Slough Hill and Lodge Hill. The start and finish of the run are actually where Peter had his heart attack on December 28th 2016, so this is personal!

Very generously Peter is running in aid of Hearts & Souls and he’s managed to recruit some people to join him on the run. If you’d like to wish him well why not sponsor him? Just click here to reach his JustGiving page. Or click on the picture.

 If you or a loved one have been through the rehab programme, you’ll know how life-changing it is. Your sponsorship is an easy way to ensure we can continue to help heart patients get back to normal and continue to do amazing things.

 With heartfelt thanks in anticipation.

The Hearts & Souls Committee
