Waitrose Community Matters Scheme Helps Fund CRY Screening in Memory of Jon Hayman

Sidmouth Herald, 11th January 2020

After Marion and Robert Hayman lost their 27 year old son Jon to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) in 2013, they set up the Jon Hayman Memorial Fund. The trust raises money for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) to provide heart screenings for young people between the ages of 14 and 35. Their cause was chosen to benefit from the Waitrose Community Matters Scheme and garnered enough customer support to receive a donation of £326.

Mrs Hayman has previously organised two Sidmouth screenings in collaboration with CRY and a third is planned for the 22nd of January at Sidmouth College.

“Although this in a national charity, the screening is very much a local event,” she said. “Every penny raised goes towards providing screening for our youngsters between the ages of 14 and 35. I have, and am continuing to raise awareness of CRY and the importance of screening, within the local community.”
