Family, friends and former colleagues have raised funds in memory of a young woman who died suddenly from a heart condition.

Accountant Claire Reed, 22, from Eastleigh, had only been married for five months when she collapsed and died in March.

Claire was the focal point of a black tie ball held at the Ageas Bowl cricket ground in West End, where Claire used to work. It raised more than £8,000 for charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).

Among those attending was Hampshire wicket-keeper and batsman Michael Bates who auctioned a signed Royals shirt.

RSM Tenon employee Claire is believed to have died of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), which kills at least 12 young people a week in the UK.
