Having been born with Congenital Heart Disease, Pete was transferred from Gloucester to Bristol Royal Infirmary and underwent his first operation at just a week old.

A follow up procedure a year on was again carried out in Bristol, and Pete has been attending regular check-ups and scans as an outpatient at the BHI for almost 10 years. Now he is fundraising to say thank you to staff at the hospital.

I am extremely grateful for the exceptional care I received in Bristol both in infancy and as an adult.  The staff at the BHI have always been fantastic and clearly care an awful lot about their work and their patients.

The keen photographer will be running both the Paris and Edinburgh marathons - but if that wasn’t enough he’ll be cycling to both events.

The journey to Paris will be done in three days and the trip from Bristol to Edinburgh will be completed in nine days – including taking on the Three Peaks en route!

Pete said: “I’m hoping to raise at least £2,000 for the BHI Appeal but really it is an open ended fundraising goal!”
