Gen­er­ous club’s lat­est events raise £1,000 for Sep­sis Trust

Cynon Valley - - YOUR NEWS -

A CYNON Val­ley club that has raised al­most £20,000 for good causes over the past few years has do­nated its lat­est cheque to the Sep­sis Trust.

Mem­bers of Cw­ma­man Club, known lo­cally as Glyn­hafod Club, pre­sented a £1,000 cheque to the Welsh branch of the char­ity, which has been raised through var­i­ous events.

The trust helps save lives and im­prove out­comes for sur­vivors of sep­sis, which claims 6,000,000 lives ev­ery year.

On be­half of the club, Gra­ham Lewis said: “This is only one of many sums of money that has been raised by the club over the years for char­i­ties who get very lit­tle help from else­where.”

In at­ten­dance at the pre­sen­ta­tion was Michelle Christo­pher, whose daugh­ter Chloe trag­i­cally died of the dis­ease in 2014.

Chloe, 17, from Cw­ma­man, had what ap­peared to be a chest in­fec­tion or a cold in the run up to New Year, but died after she fell ill on the evening of De­cem­ber 30, 2014.

As part of a new film pro­duced by the Welsh Am­bu­lance Ser­vice, Michelle re­cently de­scribed how she per­formed CPR (car­diopul­monary re­sus­ci­ta­tion) on her daugh­ter as she died.

Sep­sis Trust UK’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor for Wales, Ter­ence Can­ning, ac­cepted the cheque on be­half of the char­ity.
