Peak Performance from Cardiac Staff in Epic Fundraiser for Heart Charity

A team of heart health staff from across south Wales are celebrating after raising over £3,300 during an epic challenge across Britain. The four friends work in the Cardiac Catheter Theatres at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff and chose to support the British Heart Foundation to stay positive and motivated after what they say has been a difficult time for charities and health workers due to the covid pandemic.

Elizabeth Sim, 45, from Bridgend said, “I have been working in the Cardiac Cath Lab at the University Hospital of Wales for almost two years now. Since losing my partner over 5 years ago, I challenge myself once a year to a challenge that I can push myself and also raise funds for charity. So, when I picked the National Three Peaks Challenge and the girls asked could they join me I was absolutely thrilled.
