''This charity really means a lot to me and my family because in 2017 unfortunately my father in law, Rupert, passed away due to coronary heart disease. He was a great Husband, Dad and Grandad and has left a huge hole in our family. The British Heart Foundation do amazing work in this space so any donations to further support them would be really gratefully received.
While running the London marathon has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, combining this with running for such a great cause and in memory of Rupert makes it even more special.''
The British Heart Foundation have helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It's only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. Just £24 could pay for two hours of research by an early career scientist, but every pound helps so if you can donate please click the link below.
From all of us here at Auto-Sleepers we wish Dean the best of luck this weekend!
