Tragically, Lilly-May was just 5 years old when she suddenly collapsed at school, while being collected by her mum and nan. She had suffered a sudden cardiac arrest, and died shortly afterwards.
Lilly-May could be alive today if an AED (automated external defibrillator) had been available. This portable, life-saving device can be used by anyone to restart the heart when cardiac arrest strikes, using an electrical charge to establish a regular heartbeat.
Sadly, Lilly-May's school did not have an AED, which is true of the vast majority of schools and public places across the country, despite an estimated 60,000 people a year dying from cardiac arrest.
TrustATrader member business Abbey Windows are raising money for Arrhythmia Alliance, a charity which is working to provide AED's for as many schools and public places as possible, as well as to improve the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life for all those affected by heart rhythm disorders.
We hope you will support this important cause by visiting the Just Giving page set up by Abbey Windows to raise money for Arrhythmia Alliance in memory of Lilly-May.
