On Wednesday 14th July, the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation visited Riverley Primary School in Leyton to deliver CPR training and discuss Justin’s Law, a primary aim of the JE3 Foundation.
Year 5 pupils watched on as Charlie Edinburgh shared the story of his father’s passing due to cardiac arrest at age 49, before delving into CPR training in partnership with Heartwize. Joining the pupils in learning CPR were Japhet Tanganga and Adam Thompson of Tottenham Hotspur and Leyton Orient.
Speaking after the session, Japhet said: “Today was a really informative lesson and it was great to be a part of it with Riverley Primary School. The JE3 Foundation do incredible work and it is vital we continue to support them in their campaign for legislative change. After what happened to my former teammate Christian Eriksen this summer at Euro 2020, educating people on how to administer CPR has never been so important.”
The visit is a prelude to the second annual JE3 Cup, in which Leyton Orient will host Tottenham Hotspur this Saturday 17th August as part of their pre-season programme. £2 from every ticket purchased will be donated to the JE3 Foundation in Justin’s memory.
