At the start of July, John Patten (G3PIN) will be hosting a special event outside his home in Penkridge, Staffordshire in remembrance of his late wife Doreen and to raise awareness of heart disease and the work of the British Heart Foundation.

There is no entrance fee but all donations will be gratefully accepted on behalf of the British Heart Foundation.
