'To Us, Everton Is A Life-Saving Club'

Back in December, Seamus Coleman and Gylfi Sigurdsson surprised Evertonians Eddie and Sandy Parry. 

Selfless Everton in the Community volunteers, the couple help the charity deliver vital first aid and defibrillator training sessions, having tragically lost their 27-year-old son Daniel on New Year's Eve 2017 to Brugada syndrome.

A genetic disorder that can cause sudden cardiac arrest, Eddie and Sandy subsequently discovered that they and their daughter Rachael also have the condition.


As well as providing the family with a potentially life-saving defibrillator for their home, Seamus and Gylfi handed over hospitality tickets for Everton's game against Bournemouth courtesy of the Club's official match breaks and team travel partner Thomas Cook Sport.

Watch the video above or here to learn more about Eddie and Sandy's story, how their VIP day at Goodison left them "feeling special" and their campaign to raise awareness of how to use defibrillators.
