400km in one day/ An AED for life

On 15th June I am attempting to cycle 400km in one day.

This will involve a 4am start and home before midnight all going well! I am raising money to fund an AED for the Out of the Blue Drill Hall in Leith, Edinburgh where our office is based.

An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) An AED is a sophisticated, reliable, safe, computerised device that delivers electric shocks to a casualty in cardiac arrest when the ECG rhythm is one that is likely to respond to a shock. St John Ambulance report that survival rates are as high as 74% with fast response times often possible when an AED is nearby. This compares to a 15 % likely hood of resuscitation by manual CPR.

If you look at the distribution of AEDs on the map of Edinburgh, Leith, unlike other areas of Edinburgh, has very few AED locations. The Drill Hall provides community resources and spaces including Cafe, Performance, Exhibition and creative workspaces and is a very suitable location for the area. Calum Duncan Architects are located within the Drill Hall and we feel this is a simple but important anomaly which can be corrected for the benefit of the local community and visitors to the space.

I would fantastic if you would give a lot, or a lot of support.

    Now the less good news. I managed to cycle into the back of a parked car! Yup, doesn't sound so clever. Fractured jaw, broken nose, 3 teeth out and many stitches. My planned cycle day was this Saturday, so I've had to postpone the cycle. I am recovering well and feeling a lot better now, but not quite there. I have rescheduled the event to August and will keep you posted nearer the time. Plenty of time to rest, recover and repair. It will likely mean less daylight hours but I am prepared for that. Thanks All Calum

    Hi All Firstly I'd like to say a massive thank you for all the donations received. 151% of target raised, which means approx 75% of being able to purchase and AED outright without any other source of funding. Fantastic news, and will continue to raised funds towards £1000 if possible.

    Thanks everyone who has donated. Really pleased to have made the £500 mark. Please don't stop though folks. An AED will cost around £1000 and the closer I can get to raising all the money the better! And the more pressure on completing the cycle......
