Since we lost Dan we have set up a memorial fund with CRY so that we can give back to the community, and allow young people in the area such as yourselves to be screened, and hopefully come out with a tick in the box to say that at that point in time your heart is working normally.
In order for us to be able to hold screening days we had to raise £5000 which goes directly to CRY to help raise awareness and support families. This then allowed us to set up the Dan Hughes Memorial Fund for heart screening.
The screening days cost £3,500 for 100 young people to be screened this is a cost of £35 per person.
The Daniel Hughes Memorial Fund
We have raised money to provisionally book 6 screening days, with the first 2 being in September 2016 which the school have kindly allowed us to use as a venue for the days, more details will be released closer to the time.
So if you do the maths, £5,000 to CRY and 6 screening days at £3,500 in the 12 months since we have lost Dan we have raised just over £38,000.
Dan has a memorial page on the CRY website, to take a look at this please click here
