Family hosting charity event in memory of Tom Petley

A LOVING family will be hosting a charity event for Cardiac Risk in the Young in honour of a young man who died suddenly.

Thomas Petley, from Ramsey, died in his sleep on April 21 last year aged just 20.

The event aims to raise funds to provide heart screening for local young people aged 14 to 35.

Taking place on October 14, the event will be held at Little Oakley Memorial Club.

It will begin at 7.30pm, with tickets costing £10.

Twelve members of Tendring Beach Patrol also walked the coastline from Brightlingsea to Dovercourt, raising more than £1,000 for Cardiac Risk in the Young earlier this month.
