Founded in loving memory of brothers Chris and Steve Phillips, who both tragically died of a Cardiac Arrest: Sudden Adult Death Syndrome; aged 28 and 29 respectively.
The Heart of Weston has been established to give something back to the village that they thought so much of. We hope this community-based charity will help to protect others living in Weston, as Chris and Steve would have wanted.
The aim of the charity is to:
- Maintain the defibrillator situated at the Village Hall
- Provide heart screening for 14-35 year olds
(12 young people die of a cardiac arrest in the UK every week)
- Provide ECGs for adults
- Provide general first aid training for adults and children
