In creating the Henry Angell-James Memorial Trust, his widow, Sally
Angell-James, with her fellow Trustees, want to help save other people's
lives by buying automated external defibrillators (AEDs) (in order that
anyone will be able to help someone suffering a cardiac arrest.)

With your generous support we can create an active legacy in Henry's memory;
providing vital equipment to save lives.
