The first screenings

Screenings, Brentford, 2009

The first free heart screenings for young people sponsored by Tom’s Fund were held over three days at Brentford Football Club in June 2009. After fund-raising for more than a year, around 300 people were tested as part of CRY’s first national screening tour.

Brentford’s then manager, Andy Scott, a CRY patron, supported the event. He was forced to stop playing football when diagnosed with a heart condition.
