Opus Land announces defibrillator installation in memory of Henry Angell-James

Jun 29, 2020

Opus Land announces the installation of a defibrillator at their office, in honour of Henry Angell-James, a prominent figure in the property industry who died suddenly in October 2017 at the age of 54 having suffered cardiac arrest.

Founded in March 2019, the Henry Angell-James Memorial Trust was set up to help save other people’s lives by providing and installing defibrillators in public places across the West Midlands, with the support of the West Midlands Ambulance Service Trust and public fundraising.

Opus are pleased to be supporting the trust whose work will undoubtedly save lives. It is one of the first industrial developers in the UK to commit to installing defibrillators at its current and future projects, ensuring that its occupiers will have access to the potentially lifesaving equipment.

In memory of Henry, the Angell-James Memorial Trust is on a mission to help save the lives of others by raising money to buy Free Public Access Defibrillators. To get involved, donate or partner with the trust, please visit their website for more information.
