Our latest free heart screenings for young people aged between 14-35 will take place on Thursday, April 6, at Drayton Manor High School, Drayton Bridge Road, London, W7 1EU.

You can book a CRY screening by going here .

If you do book, please make every effort to attend. If you can’t attend for any reason, please let CRY know. Our screenings have always been over-subscribed. If you can’t get there, somebody else can.

If you have any queries, please contact CRY rather than the school or us. Contact details for CRY are here.

We are extremely grateful to Drayton Manor High School, Tom and Ellen’s old school, for hosting the event.

To date more than 2,400 young people have been screened at events sponsored by Tom and Claire’s Fund. So to all of you who have raised the money which allows the screenings to take place, thank you. You have saved lives.

Ninety-eight young people were tested at the latest free CRY heart screenings sponsored by Tom and Claire’s Fund on Sunday, November 6.

Some were referred for further tests.

A total of £158 was also donated during the event at the Florence Road surgery, Florence Road, Ealing, and Paul Clabburn said: “We’re very grateful for the donations made on the day and, of course, to those who have raised money so that the event could take place.

“Yet again we also owe a huge debt of gratitute to the CRY team for their dedication and professionalism and to Dr Evans and his staff for hosting the event.”

More free Tom and Claire’s Fund sponsored heart screenings are planned to take place in Ealing in spring and autumn, 2017.

But if you are aged between 14-35 and want to be tested before that, you can find further information and a calendar of all CRY’s heart screenings here.

More @CRY_UK screenings to mark Tom and Claire’s anniversaries

CRY St George's launch event

The ECG your fund-raising bought in Tom and Claire’s name.

We’re supporting further CRY heart screenings in the next three months to mark the anniversaries of Tom’s death on October 5 and Claire’s on December 1.

Earlier this year, the Fund sponsored six of CRY’s regular subsidised screenings at its testing centre at St George’s hospital in Tooting. We did so because we believe that it is better for the money you have raised to be used proactively, rather than sit in an account.

We’re now sponsoring five more screening days between October 8 and December 3. That there is a need is shown by the fact that the first two days are already fully booked.

If you want to book a subsidised screening at St George’s – they cost £35 – contact CRY. Details here.

If you want to book a free screening in Ealing on November 6, keep an eye on this site. Booking will open in the first week of October.

Take to the streets to support the #EalingHalf and @CRY_UK #Ealing

CRY postcard campaign

Help to prevent 12-a-week.

 

This coming Sunday, thousands of runners will take part in the annual Ealing Half Marathon – and @CRY_UK and Tom and Claire’s Fund will benefit as an associated charity.

While it’s now too late to book a place to run, you can still get out on the pavements to cheer on the runners.

The event follows hard on the heels of the Andrew Carter Memorial Mile, organised by Ealing Half Marathon organisers Kelvin Walker and Sandra Courtney. That race raised around £1,000 for Tom and Claire’s Fund and we are very grateful to Kelvin, Sandra and the Carter family for their support.

To host each free CRY screening day for 100 people, the Fund has to raise £3,500. The practical outcome of the memorial mile is that it pays for the screening of about 30 young people aged 14-35. So, to all of you who took part, that’s what you’ve achieved.  Thank you.

Our next free heart screenings will be held in Ealing on November 6. Details on how to book will appear on this site in early October. You can sign up to email alerts if you want to be updated.
