18th -22nd November 2019 is the annual CRY Awareness Week and around the country these events take place to raise money for CRY as well as promoting awareness of Young Sudden Cardiac Death (#YSCD) and the statistics of heart related deaths in young people.
It is known that at least 12 young people aged 14-35 died each week from an undetected heart condition (#12aweek).
The family of one our employees suffered the tragic loss of their youngest son in 2015. Since then PDR have been keen to help in any way they can to spread awareness and promote the work the family do (with support from CRY) in offering free heart screenings locally.
The photos below are just a snapshot of some of the home baking that staff at our head office brought in! Also seen in the last photo are Jamie’s parents Jenny & Graham and our very own Lucy, who hosted the fundraising event alongside her colleague Sharon.
