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 from Marfan Syndrome.
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
