The Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation has unveiled a new website and donated three life-saving defibrillators in honour of former Leyton Orient manager Justin Edinburgh.
The update comes on the anniversary of the passing of the charismatic footballer and manager who tragically died from cardiac arrest on this day (June 8) two years ago.
The JE3 Foundation, which was founded just weeks after the shocking events of June, has already donated nine defibrillators in less than 12 months, including the latest donations to Southend United Football Cub, AFC Rushden & Diamonds, and Mavericks RFC.
The all new je3foundation.com — launched today as the go-to destination for supporters to learn about Justin’s story and meaningfully engage with JE3 — covers the charity’s commitment 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 U.K.
Above all, today is about lovingly remembering the impact that Justin had on the game and people.
