200 Young People Tested at Bridlington’s Heart Screening Event

Bridlington Free Express, 14th August 2019

Two hundred young people were tested in Bridlington by the Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) mobile screening facility on August 6th and 7th in the town’s second screening event. The first day of the event was funded by Fraisthorpe Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund and the Two Ridings Community Foundation, while the second was funded by the Tesco Bags of help scheme, Tracey Alderslade and family and a fundraising match at Bridlington Town Football Club organised by Gavin Kelly and Pete Smurthwaite.

According to Gail Slater of the team behind the project, “It went really well. We had two hundred people that were screened over the two days and we had all the appointments filled.”

The next Bridlington Heart Screening Days are to be the 7th and 8th of April 2020 and will be funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. Gail added: “We still have a good amount of money left from the football match which will fund future screening days once the lottery funded days have taken place.”
