The parents of teenager who died from a rare heart disease have raised funds to provide his home village with a defribrillator.

Craig Rawlinson, from Burgh le Marsh, died aged just 18, after suffering from an undiagnosed heart condition.

His parents Kay and Paul organised a race night at the Red Lion pub, in Burgh to fundraise for the defribrillator, used to treat cardiac arrest.

A total of almost £2,000 was raised on the night, enough to purchase the life-saving equipment.

Kay said: “We were greatly helped by the people and businesses of the village whom gave great raffle prizes for the night, which along with the race night and the donations from kindly people went to contributing to the amazing total of nearly £2,000.

“I think it is quite an achievement, and the sign of a village all coming together for a good 
cause.”
