Ninety young people aged between 14-35 were screened by Cardiac Risk in the Young at Drayton Manor High School, Hanwell, on April 6.

Both Tom and Ellen attended Drayton Manor, which was hosting screenings for the second time. Of those tested, six were referred for further investigation.

Ellen Clabburn said: “We’d like to thank CRY for carrying out the screenings with their usual professionalism, Drayton Manor High School for providing the facilities and, of course, all those who have raised the funds which mean the screenings can take place and be free to those attending.”

The next screenings sponsored by Tom and Claire’s Fund are planned for November in Ealing.

A fully booked day of screenings sponsored by Tom and Claire’s Fund is underway at Drayton Manor High School, Drayton Bridge Road, W7. As ever, it could not have happened without all of you who have fund-raised.

Tom was a student at Drayton Manor and the idea of holding the event at the school came from one of his teacher’s, Caroline Bischoff, who has also raised awareness of CRY among pupils.

Paul Clabburn said: “We’re very grateful to Caroline for coming up with the idea and we’d like to thank Liz Stephenson and Guy Heyhoe from Drayton Manor for working with CRY in planning the event. We’re also grateful to Sir Pritpal Singh, head teacher, for allowing the premises to be used.

“It was lovely to be able to catch-up with the CRY screening team, some of whom we have worked with many times before. It’s fantastic that those being screened have the benefit of being tested by such a highly experienced and motivated team.”

It’s because of people like Faith …

 
Ealing half-maration

We’re holding our next free heart screenings for young people aged 14-35 in Ealing on November 9 – and it’s because of the fund-raising efforts of people such as Faith Howells that we are able to do so.

Family friend Faith will be pushing herself to run further than ever before in this Sunday’s Ealing half-marathon.

Faith said: “I have never attempted a half-marathon and so this will be my biggest challenge so far. CRY is important to me because my close friend Tom died unexpectedly from an undiagnosed heart condition when he was 14.

“CRY are incredible both at raising awareness of conditions like Tom’s and increasing opportunities for 14-35 year olds to identify cardiac irregularities through their free screenings.

“I saw first-hand the benefits of these screenings when a minor irregularity in my sister was detected and checked out.”

Faith continued: “I discovered my love for running when I was 17 and have kept it up over my three years at university. Any money raised for Tom’s Fund will help towards screening in west London so donations large or small would go towards this incredibly important cause and spur me on to reach my personal best!”

You can support Faith here.

NB: The Ealing November 9 screenings are now fully booked. We plan to hold further free screenings in Spring and Autumn 2015. Follow this site on Twitter, Facebook, Linked-In or by email for updates.

Raindrops keep falling on Claire’s head

 

CRY pop-up book sale June 2014

Sue Howells, Claire Prosser and Chris Pearson brave the rain.

Claire’s pop-up book sale raised a further £168 for CRY on Saturday – despite the torrential rain.

“I was surprised but really pleased by how much we raised,” said Claire. “I’m also very grateful to all those who bought books and especially to Sue and Chris for helping.”

The money adds to the £870 raised by Claire’s main book sale in May – which also had to contend with wet weather – and means that the two events have raised a grand total of £1038.

The sales take place outside Munson’s Coffee, St Mary’s Road. Ealing. All unsold books are donated to Oxfam in Ealing so nothing goes to waste.
