Garden Centre Fundraises for Cardiac Risk in the Young

The Herts Advertiser, 19th June 2019

Burston Garden Centre in St Albans has raised nearly £9000 for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). The Garden Centre made CRY its chosen charity after a member of staff lost his son to an undiagnosed heart condition. In the last couple of years since then, they have raised more than £8800 for CRY through various activities and events. “This is a charity that is close to our hearts, so we are delighted to have raised such a significant amount for Cardiac Risk in the Young,” said owners of Burston Garden Centre, Enid Pearson and Eileen Preistland. CRY aims to prevent sudden cardiac death by providing young people with heart screenings which can detect hidden conditions which often present no signs or symptoms. “On behalf of all of us at CRY, I would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to the team at Burston Garden Centre for all their hard work and commitment to CRY’s cause,” said CRY’s Chief Executive Steven Cox. “The staff, and their customers, have raised a tremendous amount of money for CRY to help support our ongoing mission to prevent the incidence of young sudden cardiac death and we are incredibly grateful for their efforts.” Link no longer available
