What we do

Henry Angell-James died suddenly in October 2017, aged 54, having suffered a cardiac arrest on his regular train journey home from Birmingham to Shrewsbury.

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).

Working with the West Midlands Ambulance Service Trust and with the help of fund raising, their mission is to provide AEDs in public places throughout the West Midlands. The more defibrillators that are available and used in the community, the higher the survival rates will be achieved from cardiac arrests.

The aim is to buy as many AED's as possible, identify key locations and install them across the West Midlands; in the centres of villages and rural communities - at sports grounds, local schools, train stations, the village shop or community hall.

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