On the 17th April 2012, 7 year old Ciaran Geddes went out to play football with his friends. Unfortunately he didn’t make it to the pitch. He suffered a suspected cardiac arrest and, although first aid (CPR) was given within minutes, he sadly passed away.
Had a defibrillator been present he would have stood a greater chance of survival.
“Ciaran’s Cause” is our not for profit charity to help raise funds to supply schools and sports clubs with defibrillators, so that hopefully another family doesn’t have to go through the heartbreak that Ciaran’s parents, Marika and Steff have been through.
Gorse Covert Primary School is proud to support Ciarans Cause
