This year as well as raising funds to improve the outdoor play areas at school, we are proud to be supporting The Kieran Joyce Memorial Fund which has been recently set up in Hereford with CRY, (Cardiac Risk in the Young) by Kieran’s parents Andrea and Gareth Joyce.
In September 2019 Kieran, a fit and healthy young man of 15 years of age fell asleep and never woke up. CRY’s mission is to prevent young sudden cardiac death through awareness, screening and research, and to support families after a tragedy. Every week in the UK at least 12 apparently fit and healthy young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions and Kieran’s parents do not want another local family to experience the pain of losing their son or daughter when it could have been prevented if detected with heart screening. The Kieran Joyce Memorial Fund is raising money to organise screening days in Hereford for our young people.
