David Bardsley to run 20th marathon

David Bardsley Just Giving 2022In November 2020 Cresset's Commercial Director, David Bardsley, was diagnosed with a faulty mitral valve, which came as a complete shock as he had experienced no symptoms. As a keen runner and cyclist, this was not welcome or expected. Following open heart surgery in March 2021 David is now recovered and able to run his 20th (and final) marathon in London. David will run the London Marathon to help raise funds for the British Heart Foundation so many others can benefit from treatment and return them to normal life after a similar experience. Read David's story in full and donate.

Susan Henderson, Support Scientist at Cresset, and Secretary and Befriender at the Cambridgeshire support group at Sands (Stillbirth and neonatal death charity) presents a digital camera to the Bereavement Team at the Rosie Maternity Hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The camera will enable the bereavement team to take good quality, non-clinical photos of babies who have died during pregnancy or shortly after birth, in particular those born before the 24 week gestation.

“The Rosie Bereavement team are very grateful for the fantastic camera donated by Cresset, which will further support us in helping bereaved parents create precious memories of their babies.” – Janet Latimer.

Sands supports anyone affected by the death of a baby. Call their Freephone Helpline on 0808 164 3332 or email helpline@sands.org.uk. For further information on the bereavement support services Sands provides visit www.sands.org.uk/support.
