The Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation has donated three defibrillators to clubs to mark the second anniversary of Justin Edinburgh’s death.

Former Leyton Orient manager and Tottenham defender Edinburgh died on June 8, 2019 after suffering a cardiac arrest at the age of 49.

The JE3 Foundation was founded just weeks after Edinburgh’s tragic passing and has worked to provide training and resources to help combat cases of cardiac arrest.

They have already donated nine defibrillators in less than 12 months, with three of those coming on Tuesday to mark the second anniversary of Edinburgh’s death. AFC Rushden & Diamonds, Mavericks RFC and Southend United have all had life-saving defibrillators donated to them.

The JE3 Foundation have also launched their new website, which will allow supporters to learn about Edinburgh’s story and the charity’s work.

The JE3 Foundation are committed to defibrillator donations moving forward, in addition to delivering wide-scale CPR training, and fighting for Justin’s Law; a legislative change mandating the installation of automated external defibrillators in all health and sports facilities in the UK.

Charlie Edinburgh, Foundation CEO and Justin’s son, said: “The shock never fully retreats. But, in the deepest moments of grief, it’s the stories of individuals, whose lives were touched by him, that inspire us into action so that we can continue his legacy.

“Dad lived in the moment and looked to the future with unwavering optimism. This informed our decision to launch our new website and donate defibrillators today — we wanted to commemorate this specific day, remember the man, whilst also bringing supporters into this next phase of the Foundation’s work.”
