    Story

    On Thursday 14th July my Grandad went into cardiac arrest at a Nelson FC training session while watching my younger cousin Jack. While waiting for an ambulance Kevin Brown a Nelson FC player performed CPR on my grandad and saved his life. Thanks to his amazing actions my grandad is still here today recovering in Blackburn Hospital. He owes Kevin his life, without his actions he certainly wouldn't have been here and there would have been a huge hole in our family. We cannot even begin to thank him, manager Phil Eastwood and the team for everything they did. We've set up this just giving page as a way to show our appreciation to Nelson FC. They will be putting the money raised towards a defibrillator for the team and fans.

      Through your amazing support and the publicity my Grandads story has received I am pleased to announce that we have had a defibrillator donated to our cause by the Joseph Windsor Heart Trust an amazing charity set up in memory of Joseph who sadly passed away aged 13 from the heart condition Restrictive Cardiomyopathy in April 2011. We cannot thank them enough for the work they do providing this life saving equipment. The money you have all helped raised will now go towards defib training and other medical equipment. Thank you everyone!!
