Defib funded in Ryan’s memory
VOLUNTEERS who helped a well-known Valley baker who died suddenly are now able to buy lifesaving equipment in his memory.
Ryan Cordey died on Sunday, November 4 at his home in Waterfoot, after a heart attack.
Rossendale Community First Responders volunteers did all they could for Ryan and his family and friends have now raised £1,300 to buy equipment for the group.
Ryan’s brother Anthony said: “The response from everyone who knew him after Ryan died has been overwhelming.
“We wanted to help the volunteers who tried so hard to save him.”
Responders team leader Dawn Taylor said: “Thanks to Ryan’s family and friends for their kind and generous donations to our fund. We will use the money to purchase a new defibrillator for one of our kits.”
Dad-of-two Ryan spent his whole working life in the food industry in the family bakery business, Cordey’s, at Waterfoot.
