This year’s Jam Jar Army charity, The Stephen Carey Fund, has started ensuring that sports clubs in Alnwick are equipped with first-aid kits.
At the weekend, Dougie and Scott McEwan from the namesake fund, set up in tribute to the 21-year-old from Alnmouth who collapsed and died due to an undiagnosed heart defect, presented a number of kits to representatives of Alnwick Rugby Club.
Andrew Bell, chairman of Alnwick Rugby Club, said: “Thank you both for coming to the club this morning and for presenting our junior rugby sides with first-aid kits from The Stephen Carey Fund.
“We all feel that what you do is extremely worthwhile and we will come back to you in due course to assist with some sort of fund-raising activity.”
Plans are already well under way to hand out more first-aid kits to more sports clubs across north Northumberland.
One of the other goals of The Stephen Carey Fund is to install defibrillators.
A new device was unveiled in Alnwick this week.
