Weʼre raising £1,500 to buy a public access defibrillator and cabinet (24hr accessible) for the south end of Penarth esplanade, outside the Lifeboat Station

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
There are approximately 60,000 out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrests each year in the UK.
Early defibrillation is an essential life saving step in the chain of survival. Anyone can use a defibrillator with no training.
If used promptly, a defibrillator can increase the chance of survival of out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest from 7% to 40-50%.
My name is James King and I’m a Community First Responder for the Welsh Ambulance Service.
I have identified the need for a 24 hour public access defibrillator for Penarth Esplanade and have a proposed location of the front wall of the Lifeboat Station

About the fundraiser
Penarth, United Kingdom
I've been a First Responder with the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust since November 2015. I understand first hand how important a defibrillator is to be readily available for anyone at any time.
