Who we are

Beating Hearts Merrow was set up by local resident Judith Hunt, who had a sudden and unexpected cardiac arrest while at work. She was fortunate enough to work in a hospital and underwent immediate and successful resuscitation.
Beating Hearts Merrow is aiming to:
• Raise funds for a 24 hour access defibrillator in Merrow goto
• Arrange training for Merrow residents in how to recognise and manage a sudden cardiac arrest
