Jack Thomas, a 15-year-old boy from Oakdale, Blackwood was a fit and healthy sports enthusiast who represented Wales all across Europe on several occasions in Taekwondo. An A* student, Jack had been successful in gaining a scholarship at Cardiff Sixth Form College. He was a loving boy with a promising future.
Whilst watching Wales V Scotland in a Six Nations rugby match at his girlfriends' house in Newbridge on the 12th February 2012, fit and healthy Jack collapsed and died suddenly from suspected Arrhythmia, although this has never been confirmed.
Following his tragic and unexpected death, Jack's mum June & dad Grant backed a petition and handed it into the Welsh Assembly in 2014, which called for a Defibrillator to be placed in every public place in Wales – dubbed ‘Jack’s Law’.
Until Jack's Law is passed, Jack's parents, family and friends have set up ‘Jacks Appeal’ to provide AED devices to all schools in Wales.
June and Grant have been tirelessly fundraising ever since, and have placed an incredible 54 Defibrillators into Schools & public buildings across Gwent & the Rhymney Valleys to-date. Welsh Hearts are supporting the campaign by providing the Defibrillators and free CPR training to the schools & local communities.
The Jack’s Appeal campaign has already had a huge impact and has saved lives.
