Dad Organises Heart Screening at Hornchurch School in Memory of His Son James Patterson

Romford Recorder, 7th June 2019

For the last nine years, Peter Patterson – whose son, James, passed away due to an undiagnosed heart condition in 2005 – has been making sure that students of his son’s former school receive heart screenings annually. Working with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), Peter raises money to fund the screenings through the James Patterson Memorial Fund. This year, the sons of four of James’ friends were screened. “It was a successful couple of days as usual,” Peter said, describing the event. “We had 183 pupils have heart screenings attend overall.” Link no longer available
