The north Northumberland village that was home to the 21-year-old who inspired this year’s Jam Jar Army beneficiary is holding a fund-raising event next weekend.
Last year, Alnmouth hosted its first family fun day to support The Stephen Carey Fund and it was such a success that it is happening again this year, on Saturday, July 26.
In 2013, the £1,882 raised allowed for a public-access defibrillator to be installed at Hipsburn and this year they are looking to repeat their success, this time for the benefit of Alnmouth itself.
It comes not long after the second anniversary of Stephen’s death, which was caused by an undiagnosed heart defect and led to him collapsing during a football match.
The Fund installs public-access defibrillators as well as providing first-aid training.
