SADS UK thanks Helen, Jordanne and all of their friends and family for their kind support in memory of Laura. Laura passed away suddenly in July 2019 aged just 38. Her family and friends raised awareness and funds for SADS UK to mark what would have been Laura's 40th birthday. With the funds raised they were keen to donate a defibrillator to Toe2Toe Fitness as the fitness centre understands how important this equipment is, and both Helen and Jordanne wanted them to benefit from having a defibrillator on their premises.
When the InXpress Gives Back Committee asked if anyone knew of any causes the franchise network could support, SADS UK member Lisa Savage suggested supporting SADS UK by providing an accessible defibrillator to help save lives.
