Bromsgrove law firm raises £1,950 for Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation

Harry Leach 7th Sep, 2019

A BROMSGROVE law firm has donated £1,950 to Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation (CCSHF).

Lawyers at MFG Solicitors on the High Street made the donation after holding a variety of raffles, cake sales and fund-raisers during the past 12 months.

The Redditch-based charity was set up by parents Rob and Maggie Underwood following the death of their 16-year-old daughter Charlotte in 2010.

Tragically, three years later the couple’s son Craig, 17, passed away from vascular ethos danlos syndrome and last January their 19-year-old son Carrick also died due to heart problems.

Kim Scolari, a senior associate at MFG Solicitors, said: “Rob and Maggie have been through more than anyone could ever imagine.

“But they show an amazing determination to campaign for more life-saving equipment in public places and in schools.

“We hope our donation will go some way to improving research, training and will help to see more defibrillators in places where people can access them easier.”

Maggie Underwood, co-founder of CCSHF, added: “This donation is fantastic and we’d like to thank everyone for their efforts.

“We are continuing to campaign hard to get more lifesaving equipment installed into as many public places and schools as possible.”
