Heart screening for young people taking place in the Isle of Wight

Heart charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) is coming to the Island at the end of July to deliver two days of cardiac testing.

Funds raised in memory of local man Graeme Blenkinsop, who was 21 when he died, mean that up to 200 young people will have the opportunity to be screened for potentially dangerous heart conditions by experts from the charity.

Anyone aged between 14 and 35 can sign up soon to book a place at www.testmyheart.org.uk
