More than £15,000 has been raised in memory of a teen from Kings Langley who died suddenly in 2009.
On Friday, March 17, Abbot’s Hill School Parents’ Association presented a cheque for £15,102 to Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) – the Dale Tennent-Butler Fund.
The money was raised through a charity ball held towards the end of last year at the school with volunteers going above and beyond to make the event happen.
Dale sadly passed away in 2009 whilst playing football at the age of 18 of sudden arrhythmic death. If Dale had been lucky enough to have his heart screened then he would still be here today.
In his memory his mum Angela set up the memorial fund with CRY to help screen people in Kings Langley.
The money raised from the ball will go towards screening at Kings Langley School. Each screening costs around £150 so this amount will allow CRY to screen 100 young people.
