Annual fundraising cake sale returns to raise money for CRY in memory of Aashi Sinha

A long-running annual cake sale dedicated to an 18-year-old who died has returned to Gidea Park. 

Following a hiatus during the Covid pandemic, the fundraiser for Cardiac Risk In The Young (CRY) was held on July 16 at Catholic Church of Christ the Eternal High Priest on Brentwood Road. 

It rasied £5,440 for the charity, which works to prevent young sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening and research.

Aashi Sinha died of cardiac arrest aged 18 in 2013.

Aashi’s dad Dr Ajay Sinha said they are “immensely grateful for the kindness and generosity of friends and family and the local neighbourhood, and businesses”.

He added: “The amount raised will go a long way toward providing screening services to detect cardiac disease in young people.”
