Story

We have held 3 heart screening days in Bridlington in memory of James 'Morph' Moorfoot. James died in February 2017 aged 28 whilst playing football for Langtoft AFC. Our next screening days were due to be held on April 7th and 8th this year, however due to the coronavirus pandemic they have been postponed until 9th & 10th February 2021. Any young person aged 14-35 can come along and be screened for free on either of these days.To be able to hold our first screening day in 2018

we successfully raised £5000 in a short period of time through justgiving and personal donations so have made the decision to hold regular screening days in Bridlington as the demand for this screening day was huge. Each week in the UK at least 12 young people aged 14-35 die from undiagnosed heart conditions, heart screening helps to detect these conditions preventing these sudden unexpected deaths. We need to raise £5000 for each day so we can screen 100 young people in the local community. By raising this amount and holding these screening days we could potentially save lives. We hope you feel able to donate and any amount would be very gratefully received, thank you.

Please note we also have a facebook page which is Bridlington heart screening day where we are giving a regular update of our total achieved, as we are also receiving donations all the time other than this justgiving page, thank you.

    Hope this helps. We were playing against James the day he passed away. I’ve shared with our team so hopefully a few will follow.

Myself and my family knew James very well and along with some colleagues from work we want to hold this screening day to help save young peoples lives. Each week in the UK at least 12 young people die from undiagnosed heart conditions and screening helps prevent this. Thank you.
