The parents of an Ackworth man who died suddenly are offering young people cardiac health screenings at a pub built in memory of their son.

Rory Embling died in May 2014 from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome resulting from a heart arrhythmia.

Chris Embling built a pub in memory of his son Rory Embling, who died suddenly at the age of 26.

Chris Embling built a pub in memory of his son Rory Embling, who died suddenly at the age of 26.

The life-long Leeds United fan, who was 26 and a solicitor, was travelling as a car passenger to a sports event in Nottingham when he died.

Mr Embling’s dad Chris built the pub Rory’s Return in the back garden of the family’s home on Fothergill Avenue in Ackworth to raise money for the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

On Saturday, September 2, CRY will be holding a second screening clinic there for people aged between 14 and 35.

Chris said: “We had our first screening event at Rory’s Return in March of this year at which nine young people were referred on for further testing. We feel that this justifies our attempts completely.”

Donations made in memory of Mr Embling have funded appointments for up to 100 free screenings during the day. The pub’s postcode is WF7 7PF.
