Look Beyond The Heart was the charity started by much-loved Bexhill woman Nicola Langlands who was Britain’s longest heart-lung transplant survivor before she died in December.

Nicola was born in 1976 with half a heart and not expected to live, but she battled against the odds to prove predictions wrong, and that fighting spirit never deserted her.

At the age of 13 she was given a new heart and lung, went on to lead an “amazing fulfilled” life of fundraising and raising awareness, and also had a daughter, Megan, which she thought of as her “real blessing.”
