A charity is appealing for help to fund heart checks on children and young adults.

Charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) raises awareness of heart conditions and offers screening tests.

Each screening test costs £75 so CRY is appealing to local businesses and residents to make donations to ensure that the planned screening goes ahead.

The next St Albans cardiac screening session will be held on October 20 and is open to those aged from 14 to 35.

The subsidised ECG and echocardiogram screening offered will discover any life-threatening cardiac conditions which could cause sudden and premature death.

Any sponsorship or donations made could directly prevent the premature or unnecessary death of a young person.

CRY also offer bereavement support for those who have lost a loved one to a heart condition.
