Saving Lives in Wales


10322760_420286424797766_6828706973309784996_nWelsh Hearts are working alongside doctors, nurses and paramedics from all over the country to teach important life saving skills to people in Wales.

Hour-long sessions will provide a thorough understanding of basic life support and may even stimulate an interest in the health service. By passing on our experience and skills we will give the students the confidence to deal with medical emergencies and ultimately in saving patients lives.

    Jack Thomas

    In the UK too many young people die suddenly from an undiagnosed heart condition. On 12th February 2012 our 15-year-old son Jack Thomas became one of those young people.

    3643002Jack was a fit and healthy boy who had represented Wales all across Europe on a number of occasions in Taekwondo. He was an A* student and had been successful in gaining a scholarship at Cardiff Sixth Form College Jack’s death came as a complete shock to us, as Jack had never been ill. To this day we still have had no answers to why our precious boy fell asleep.

    Welsh Hearts want to raise funds across Wales in rural communities, work place and schools in order that a defibrillator is positioned next to every fire extinguisher in Wales.
