raised of £1,500 target by 5 supporters

    Weʼve raised £68 to buy a public access defibrillator and cabinet (24hr accessible) for the south end of Penarth esplanade, outside the Lifeboat Station

    Penarth, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 15th December 2016

    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 nonprofit.

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


    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

    Please watch this NHS video about the importance of Defibrillators.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!

    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.
