Story

I am looking to raise money to split between a charity close to my Unisurge families home and also my Duxford families home, please read below -

In July 2017 Kayleigh Griffiths, 23, a much loved Unisurge employee sadly passed away on holiday due to an undiagnosed heart condition. Kayleigh's Dad Leon, who also part of the Unisurge family, came across Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), a national charity that raises awareness of potentially life-threatening cardiac abnormalities in young people. According to the charity, at least 12 apparently fit and healthy young people in the UK die of undiagnosed heart conditions every week. The charity also promotes the importance of screening, which is what any money raised will go towards. You can read more here -

In 2018 a very popular member of my Duxford family, Matt Smyth, 25, was killed in a hit and run days after finding out he was due to be a father. Matt's mother, Louise, is now working to set up the Matt Smyth Foundation. The charity is to help support children who lose parents in RTA's, to register as a charity Louise needs £5,000.
