We would like to pay tribute to our good friend and colleague Heather Clark who died this weekend.
Heather was born with no limbs after her mother took the anti-morning sickness drug Thalidomide, yet always managed to live her life to the full working here as a TV reporter and producer for over 25 years.
She was also a champion carriage driver, competing at national and international level with her beloved horses Barney and Pickle and she even completed a 12,500 feet parachute jump.
Heather was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer eighteen months ago and during that time has campaigned for the charity Ovacome to raise awareness of the symptoms and she also wrote an acclaimed blog 'Wheels of Steel'.
She recently appeared on Calendar to talk about her illness and was busy organising a charity ball which will take place in September.
Just seven weeks ago Heather was given the Outstanding Achievement Award at the Yorkshire Choice Awards - for which she received a standing ovation.
Her belief was that 'nothing was impossible in life' and she lived by that philosophy.
She will be missed by all of her friends at Calendar and we send our best wishes to everyone who was close to this special lady.
