On 26th October 2018, Eckington School held a non-uniform day to help fundraise for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). The non-uniform day was a very poignant one, it was organised in memory of Madeline Siddall. Madeline was a student at Eckington from 2006 to 2011.
Thank you to all students and staff who donated. We raised an amazing £875.73 for Madeline’s fund /Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). The money will be used to partly fund another local cardiac screening session for young people (aged 14-35) of Eckington and surrounding areas.
Anne Siddall said “Thank you so much for your fundraising in memory of my daughter, Madeline. This means 17 young people can be screened for undiagnosed cardiac conditions!”
One screening has already taken place on the 28th of July, 2018 and was organised by Anne and Craig Siddall; whose fundraising efforts made this event possible. Anne and Craig tragically lost their daughter Madeline, in July 2011 from an undiagnosed cardiac condition leaving family, friends and the school community devastated. We hope to support this charity again in the future.
