What’s On 4 Me 2013 Awards Nominee – Restart a Heart, Northumberland

I along with my sister in law raise awareness and funds for the Hearts and Goals project. Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the UK’s biggest killer. It does not discriminate agains age, fitness or gender. 12 children in the UK die every week usually during a sporting activity at school.

Placing a defibrillator into schools and sports grounds increases survival dramatically as the first few minutes are crucial and emergency services cannot usually respond in time. Sudden cardiac arrest usually strikes with no warning or symptoms.

christineDefibrillators require no training as they are fully automated and will only shock if sudden cardiac arrest is detected. We have 5 in local schools with another 2 on the way but it’s just not enough. Fabrice Muamba who collapsed during an FA cup game last year moved the need for defibrillators higher up on the public agenda. He owes his life as thousands do to a defibrillator. Ex Newcastle United Hero Peter Beardsley attended the first launch and has pledged his ongoing support.

I spend time every day emailing businesses in my local area asking for help to obtain prizes to auction. We’ve had race nights, sponsored Great North Swim etc. I liaise with schools, the F.A. and the North East ambulance service to provide awareness sessions on life saving skills. I spread awareness using social media urging people to know their pulse and sharing stories good and bad to educate. Along with a team of close friends and local business we have organised a winter snow ball at the Newcastle Marriott hotel to raise further funds.

My family have been affected I lost my brother 10 years ago at 32 and now his son, my nephew is 16 and has similar problems. We are determined to keep our children safe.

Karen Seafield – nominated in 2 categories in the What’s On 4 Me 2011 Awards!

October 5, 2011

Karen Seafield runs KLR Management and KLR Psychic Agency and has been nominated in 2 categories – “Best Entertainment, Day Out or Attraction” and “Best Volunteering Group or Individual” !

Karen set up KLR Management in 2006 when she was a single parent and named the business after herself and her two sons!  It was the only PR agency in Sunderland at the time and 4 years later she set up KLR Psychic Agency which is the only Psychic Agency in the North of England.

Karen says “I have helped raise over £70,000 for various local and national charities. After my dad was diganosed with cancer in 2008 I began campaiging and fundraising for cancer charities. My brother died in Intensive care August 2010, and with various fundrasing activies I helped raise £433 for Sunderland ICCU.  After losing my brother, 5 months later my dad passed away and recently I have raised over £4,000 for cancer charities while going through my own grief and daily hospital visits to see my mam. I enjoy helping people who need it.  I am now a patron for Macmillian and review cancer books.”

KLR Psychic Agency is going from strength to strength and Karen plans to expand even further in the next two years – she is regularly suppling psychics to various regional events and is now supplying now on a National basis.  Well done Karen!!

Here’s what Karen’s biggest supporter – her son said about her:

“My mam has done lots of events for 5 years and has raised thousands of pounds for lots of charities and is still raising money! Even after she lost her dad and brother and looking after us and my nana in hospital  too.  She has done lots of events with her business and she has even done fashion shows, dance festivals, talent competitions and loads and loads of other stuff!”

Well done Karen on your nomination and good luck with your votes!  You’re an inspiration & really deserve your place in these Awards!
