A supporter of the British Heart Foundation from Pembrokeshire for 20 years, is thanking those who held an 80th birthday celebration for him, with donations going to British Heart Foundation Cymru to help with vital life saving research.

It is an important cause to Bryn Vaughan from Haverfordwest, after receiving a heart operation 19 years ago.

Bryn said: “I would like to thank all my family and friends who came to the birthday event and gave donations.

“It was a wonderful evening, and I am delighted that £350 was raised for BHF to help fund research.”

The event was held at the Haverfordwest Cricket Club in July where Bryn asked for donations for his birthday to be given to BHF Cymru.

Jayne Lewis, Fundraising Manager for BHF Cymru, said: “I would like to thank Bryn for donating his birthday money to BHF Cymru.

“With 340,000 living with heart and circulatory conditions and around 26 people losing their lives each day in Wales, the need for your support to fund more lifesaving breakthroughs has never been more urgent.

“It is only with donations from the public that the BHF can keep its research going.”
