    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    In 2010 I was at my aunties wedding. It was a very nice setting all the family there and everyone enjoying themselves (my Nan and grandad especially with it being their little girl getting married). Towards the end of the night some of my family were giving their speeches, first my auntie and her husband said a few words; then my grandad stood up to give his speech. He lifted the microphone and his words were "I'm sorry I don't feel too well" and then he dropped to the floor. He went into cardiac arrest and within minutes my sister and my mum were on top of him performing CPR. There was no defibrillator available at the site; this meant his chance of survival (the second he collapsed) was around 70% and dropping by 7-10% with every minute that passed without a defibrillator. The ambulance seemed to take forever to arrive but as soon as they got there he was taken straight to hospital. He didn't survive.

    I think that's it's very important that every community has at least one defibrillator in order to try and prevent situations like this. Had there been a defib available that night, he might still be alive now.

    [Automated External Defibrillators]

    Think - If a Cardiac Arrest happened where you are now - where would the nearest AED be?

    CPADs are cabinets located on the outside wall of a building so that the AED inside can be accessible 24/7 to anyone in the vicinity who requires it. It means more people could benefit from the presence of your device and more lives could be saved.

    The cabinets have a key code lock and the code is accessed by calling 999 which means the device re-mains secure.

    Any contributions would be greatly appreciated and all proceeds will be going towards the purchase and installation of the CPAD.

    Any extra funds raised will be used for either a second CPAD or go towards the First Responder scheme run by Yorkshire Ambulance Service in Kiveton & Harthill.
