IMOCM Joins Forces with Oliver King Foundation

The IMOCM team have recently joined forces with the Oliver King Foundation Trust.

The IMOCM team have recently joined forces with the Oliver King Foundation Trust.

The OK Foundation Trust is an amazing charity set up and ran by Mark and Joanne King all in loving memory of their son Oliver, who sadly died at the tender age of 12 due to cardiac arrest.

Oliver was a keen athlete who excelled in everything, he was taking part in a school swimming gala when he went into sudden cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, there was no lifesaving defibrillator on site which potentially could have saved Oliver.


Mark and Joanne have campaigned tirelessly to have lifesaving defibrillators installed in every public place where young people frequent, they do this as Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) which is the cause for Oliver’s death effects up to 12 young people a week!


The IMOCM team have partnered with the OK Foundation on a recent project across the Melling Community where 3 KnifeSaver bleed control packs have been installed inside the OK Foundation Trust’s defibrillator boxes.
