Saving Broken Hearts
Chuckie and Emma walk 100 miles in 48 Hours for our charity
The Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation was set up after their daughter Charlotte died suddenly In December 2010 of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome. Then three years later their son Craig tragically passed away and in January 2018 their other son Carrick also passed away.
We believe that venues should be installed with potentially lifesaving equipment such as defibrillators. When a sudden cardiac arrest occurs, the casualty is usually relying on the ambulance service and first responders, and although they try their best, they can be a fair distance away from the scene.
Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation have ensured that every school in their hometown has a defibrillator on site

12 people under the age of 35 die every week due to sudden cardiac arrest in the UK

If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%

Donation of a Baby Breathing Monitor
Last week we supported a beautiful baby boy who had had complex heart surgery a few weeks ago & also suffers from sleep apnea. So we wanted to help give his family a little peace of mind. So we decided to donate a Snuza HeroMD Baby Breathing Monitor.
This was delivered to them the very same day we ordered it. We hope this will help in some small way xx
