We’re thrilled to announce that our annual event is back! After a 3-year hiatus due to Covid, we’re excited to bring back this important event for 2023. While we’re still in the early planning stages, we aim for an early September date.
Our events always focus on post-cardiac arrest survival for survivors and affected family members. We’ll be hosting a day of seminars and workshops and an evening event for attendees to relax and connect with others.
But here’s the thing – putting on this event costs money. The final bill for our last event in 2019 was in excess of £10,000; we expect costs to be even higher this year. As our membership has grown, so has the potential attendance at the event, and we want to make sure we can accommodate as many people as possible.
That’s why we’re asking for your help. If you have any fundraising ideas or want to donate to Sudden Cardiac Arrest UK to support this event, please visit our donate page to contribute.
We also want to hear from you about what you’d like to see at the event. What topics would be most valuable to you? What types of activities would you enjoy? We want to make this event as impactful and meaningful as possible for our community, and your input is vital.
Keep an eye out for more details on the event in the coming months; we can’t wait to see you there!
I have been a member of SCA UK since the beginning, maybe even before the beginning, as I was at the first meeting in London, where the idea was conceived. I am an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survivor and have been through a similar journey to many of our survivor members. I am passionate about helping as many others as possible navigate the minefield of survivorship. I’m hoping that the skills I have developed both through my working life as an engineer/businessman and as a survivor can help SCA UK to achieve that goal as it moves into a new chapter as a registered charity. I’m incredibly proud to be a trustee of that charity and am excited to see where this new journey takes us.
