‘Thank you so much Damien Erich and St Ives FC. Your initiative shown in this very worthwhile cause is outstanding. Very proud to have Jason Lee and Hakki Unver along to help receive the wonderful donation, after their heroic actions in performing CPR in that 2016 tragic event.’
Grant Harlow, ASC President

‘On Thursday evening, April 11th, St Ives delivered a very important package to the Asquith FC – Grant Harlow (President receiving).
A.F.C was picked due to the death of a referee (and former coach at SIFC) at their home ground 3 years ago and SIFC wants to make sure every opportunity is given to for both players and official to survive a cardiac arrest
At St Ives FC we continue to promote health and awareness in our district in our over 35/45 age groups, those most at risk of cardiac arrest on the field or witnessing a match or in fact officiating a match, in the last 18 months we have raised funds for 4 defibrillators to be donated to fields and clubs around the district.’
