This is Cliff.

Cliff was born with a heart condition that meant it was beating at only half the rate of a normal heart. When Cliff started to feel really unwell, he was referred to Harefield Hospital where he was told he was experiencing end-stage heart failure, with a prognosis of only a year. Thankfully, Cliff had come to the right place.

In 2012, Cliff received a new heart. He has since walked 13 miles for our Grand Canal Challenge and taken part in our Harefield Fun Run. But not only has Cliff bounced back remarkably, he has also given up hours and hours of his time to volunteer, selling our Charity products across both hospitals every single week.

In 2016, Cliff reached a staggering £20,000 in sales, and we'd like to say a HUGE thank you to him for being a fantastic servant to the Charity.


This is Gill.

Gill has been volunteering at Harefield Hospital for the past three years. At first, she worked as part of the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS), visiting patients on the wards. She then spent some time working on reception, before joining the Charity as a volunteer about a year ago.

Gill decided to volunteer at Harefield after her father was treated at the hospital several years ago. Gill and her family were hugely impressed by the level of care he received, so when she found some more time on her hands, she knew that she wanted to give something back to the hospital by volunteering.

Gill can now be found once a week selling Charity merchandise, such as hoodies, mugs and Harefield Hares in the hospital reception.

She is very proud of the fact that since joining the Charity she has sold more than £10,000 worth of stock and made a real difference to the hospital.
