Jay Osborne and Adam Stansfield were both fathers, sons, brothers and uncle’s. Both taken too soon. Their respective charities are joining forces to help equip local football clubs in Devon and Somerset with defibrillators.
Jays Aim have been working tirelessly with the target of reducing the rate of sudden cardiac death among young people. The Adam Stansfield Foundation recognise the importance of the work Jays Aim have done and want to support this further with football clubs which have a junior section in Devon and Somerset.
Clubs that fulfil this criteria can apply to either charity through their website’s. Clubs will be required to fundraise/contribute £300 towards the cost of a defibrillator and public access cabinet. These will not only benefit the football club but also the local community in addressing sudden cardiac death in the young. The life saving intervention on Fabrice Muamba and Christian Eriksen highlight the importance of defibrillators in sports environments and community’s.
