£2200 was raised for CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) at a successful fundraising evening held at the White Horse Inn in Neatishead on Saturday, 5th August. George Hemstock from HSBC Norwich was delighted to join and support the fundraising with a donation of £500.00 from the bank.
Each and every week, twelve young people in the UK die as a result of an undiagnosed heart condition. CRY promotes awareness, supports families, facilitates screening programs, and promotes research. The event was organised by Boo Williams, whose son Douglas – a passionate conservationist and experienced walking guide in Tanzania – suddenly and tragically died in 2021. There were presentations by CRY representative Sue Standing and local author, writer, presenter, and passionate conservationist Nick Acheson. Local acoustic duo LTC provided the music.”
