Hilary Neeves

(Committee Member, Secretary)

I was introduced to Upbeat after my lovely partner, Giles had a heart attack in Feb 2010 followed by bypass surgery later in the year. This came completely out of the blue and was a tremendous shock to us both. After the six week rehabilitation at West Suffolk Hospital, we were introduced to Upbeat by Jill who was giving a talk at the last session.

We duly turned up at our first session, not knowing what to expect, but soon found this group to be an enormous blessing, giving us both friendships and the confidence to move forward.

We are both lucky in having two daughters each, giving us 8 nearly 9 fantastic grandchildren. We both absolutely love being grandparents and do as much as we can with them.

I joined the fundraising and social group last year and want to help Upbeat in any way I can, so am delighted although a bit nervous about becoming secretary, but I will give it my best shot.

Upbeat is a very unique organisation. There to help and welcome all patients, from whatever economic/social background and that must be protected and cherished.
