The Trustees

My name's Richard, I'm 41, father of two children, Corban & Quinn, husband too Emma. Im a graphic designer and run a small design studio in Southport. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, trips to the beach & time at the gym. Im also a heart attack and cardiac arrest survivor. After my CA my life was turned upside down. I now re-evaluate my priorities and im driven to give something back through The Southport Saviours Foundation.

My aim is to help prevent a family losing a loved one, so they can live to tell the tale like myself.

My name is Naomi Williams, I'm 46 years old, I'm a proud mum of two grown up children and I'm about to marry my soulmate in July. I love nature, I spend a lot of time in my garden, gardening and watching the birds. I work in a primary school as a learning mentor, taking care of the children's well being. I feel passionate about raising awareness and fundraising to make defibrillators accessible to all 24 hours a day. I became aware of their importance after having to use one on a colleague which saved his life.

Joining the trustee board allows me to continue campaigning for vital first aid and getting these machines installed.
