Congratulating Wilma Gunn on being appointed an MBE

That the Parliament congratulates Wilma Gunn, the chair and founder of Scottish HART, on being appointed an MBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours for services to cardiac health and charity;

understands that Wilma set up Scottish HART in 1997 after the sudden death of her son, Cameron, who had cardiomyopathy; recognises the important work done by Scottish HART in raising money to screen young people, families at risk and competitive sportspeople for heart disorders as well as installing defibrillators in public places and running training programmes for them, and wishes her well in the continuation of what it considers to be this fantastic work.
