Shipyard Workers Receive CRY Heart Screenings In Memory of Daniel Hughes

The Mail, 7th February 2020

Since David Hughes’ 28 year old son, Daniel, passed away of a heart condition in 2015, he and his family have worked with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) to raise awareness and funding to prevent young sudden cardiac death. Nearly 100 BAE Systems workers in Barrow were able to receive free heart screening thanks to their efforts.

BAE Systems’ Director of Safety, Health and Environment (SHE), Angela Barker, stated: “We’re delighted to be able to support a second screening of our apprentices at the submarines academy today. This kind of activity is one of a series of health and well-being initiatives BAE Systems support. CRY’s initiative is to be welcomed and we look forward to working closely with the charity in the future.”
