The medical kit was delivered by campaigner Mark Seth in memory of his wife Laura Radcliffe-Seth, who died in March 2011 whilst on holiday in Cyprus.

Mr Seth, of Howicks Green, WGC, held a charity evening and took part in the Milton Keynes Big Fun Run to raise the funds.

He is supporting the cardiac charity SADS UK’s Big Shock Campaign to put lifesaving defibrillators in all schools.

Mr Seth was keen to install a defibrillator at Welwyn Rugby Football Club as they understand how 
important this equipment is.


Anne Jolly, Founder of SADS UK, the Ashley Jolly SAD Trust, said: “SADS UK is pleased that Mark Seth has supported the charity in memory of his wife Laura raising awareness and funds to put the defibrillator in place at Welwyn Rugby Football Club.

“The club will now benefit from having a defibrillator, along with lifesaving training. It’s good to know that if sudden cardiac arrest occurs the club will have a defibrillator quickly available to restart the heart.”
