Husband, Father, Friend.

Henry Angell-James died suddenly in October 2017, aged 54, having suffered a cardiac arrest on his regular train home from Birmingham to Shrewsbury. In his memory, the Angell-James Family is on a mission to help save the lives of others by raising money to buy Free Public Access Defribillators, sometimes also referred to as Automated External Defribrillators (AED’s).

Working with the West Midlands Ambulance Service we hope to buy as many AED’s as possible, identify key locations and install them across Shropshire and the West Midlands.
