Test my Heart - screening for 14 to 35 years olds

Date published: 15 May 2019

Mike Goldrick Blinds in Heywood are hosting a free heart screening service with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) on Sunday 28 July.

For those aged 14 to 35 years only, you can test your heart with a free ECG and support Cardiac Risk in the Young's screening programme.

Mike Goldrick chose CRY as his nominated charity in 2018, when he was elected as President of Heywood Rotary Club. He said: “I was aware of the charity through the death of Tom Hardman, aged 21, due to a sudden cardiac death.

“Tom was a fit and healthy young man and after speaking to Tom's parents, who I have known for many years, we discussed the charity CRY.

“I found more information about the mission of CRY, which includes improving early diagnosis through heart screening and decided to hold an event in Heywood.”

Every week in the UK at least 12 fit and healthy people, all aged under 35, die of an undiagnosed heart condition.

You can register for the free heart screening service in Heywood using the link below. Limited appointments are available between 9am – 4pm:
