Guernsey Friends of Heartbeat

Wessex Heartbeat provide many services to patient’s families who come from Guernsey and we are sure many of you on the island will be aware of us and our support in the community. In 2019, 298 families from Guernsey, stayed in our 25 bedroom, home from home, Heartbeat House which acts as a safe haven to those who need it, when their loved ones are being treated at the Wessex Cardiac Centre. 

We have built up a good relationship with our friends on Guernsey, therefore, we are delighted to announce we will be setting up a new group on the Island called Guernsey Friends of Heartbeat. This would help us to continue building new relationships with new friends that not only support us, but can spread the word of the work we do. This will also raise the awareness of the services we can offer, and provide, to many islanders on Guernsey.

Patient Stories

Sometimes it can put your mind at ease to read about the stories and experiences from patients or families that have been affected by Wessex Heartbeat's work. Whether told by us, or directly from the patient's heart; it is vital that these stories are shared and their experiences remembered. 

If you have experienced Wessex Heartbeat's work as a patient at the Wessex Cardiac Centre, or as a family staying at Heartbeat House; please feel free to share your stories, experiences and pictures by submitting your own story!

Fundraiser stories

Wessex Heartbeat would not be able to deliver the calibre of work that we do without our Fundraisers. Not only do we reap the wonderful benefits of somebody's hardwork and generosity to a cause close to their heart; we also get to see all of the incredible stories that accompany these journeys.

Whether it is a detailed account of a trek amongst the Sahara Desert, or just a brief summary of sponsored run that you did; we want to hear everyone's stories and experiences with fundraising. Your words could inspire somebody to jump out of a plane or run a marathon - submit your fundraising stories here!
