The Adam Appeal – Providing Cardiac Defibrillators

Welcome to The Adam Appeal. This appeal has been founded in memory of Adam Swanwick, a 28 year old who passed away of an acute heart attack.

Our Mission Statement

The Adam Appeal has been set up to hopefully prevent other families from going through the awful tragedy of losing someone to a heart attack.

The Adam Appeal is a not-for-profit charity which aims to raise funds to provide cardiac defibrillators to schools, colleges, sports halls and community venues and raise awareness of cardiac risk to young people in the North West of England. We campaign on issues about cardiac screening in young people and we have also provided cardiac screening to hundreds of young people in our local area.

Adam’s Story

On the 2nd September 2012, Adam Swanwick suffered an acute heart attack on the way to sample his wedding meal with his fiancee Louise, and unfortunately died later that day. He was 28 years old.
