Above & Beyond is delighted to announce Cheltenham Town FC Manager, Gary Johnson, as Bristol Heart Institute Appeal Ambassador.

Gary is getting involved with the Appeal to raise awareness about the difference that your donations will make to the Bristol Heart Institute (BHI). The hospital needs state of the art equipment and heart imaging facilities to remain at the forefront of keyhole surgery and to make advances in care and research.

Gary has personal experience of the BHI having undergone triple heart bypass surgery in March 2017. He returned to the BHI to September to support the launch of the Appeal.

“I feel honoured to be asked to be the Ambassador for the Bristol Heart Institute Appeal. I received such amazing care from all the staff at the Bristol Heart Institute and I really can’t thank them enough.

I’m delighted to support Above & Beyond and the Bristol Heart Institute Appeal so the hospital can upgrade facilities and provide the staff with the equipment they need to continue giving the best patient care.”

We're excited to have Gary on board and we'll keep you up to date with his involvement in events. To find out more about the equipment for which we're fundraising and how you can help, please visit the BHI Appeal page
