Aashi Sinha, from Gidea Park, died suddenly on May 8, 2013 when she was 18.

A fundraising cake sale will be held on Saturday, May 19 at the Catholic Church of Christ the Eternal High Priest in Brentwood Road, Gidea Park from 10am - 4pm.

Dr Suman Sinha, Aashi’s mother told the Recorder: “This fundraising event is held to raise awareness and save young lives from cardiac death for the Cardiac Risk in Young (CRY) charity.”

CRY supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers support to families affected by such conditions.

Last year family, friends and members of the community donated £5,000 for CRY, and this year they hope to raise even more. If you are interested in helping, email Karthy on
