A Retford family has been honoured by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) for their outstanding contribution to the charity.

Fraser and Jenny Britton and their son Rob, have all fund-raised for the charity after Andrew, their second son contracted a virus which caused dilated cardiomyopathy and irreversible damage to the heart muscle on his honeymoon in December 2012.

Andrew was an extremely fit 32 year old who had just returned from a week’s triathlon training when the virus struck. Andrew had to have an LVAD device implanted to enable him to receive the successful heart transplant he has since had.
