Weʼre raising £500 to install an Automated External Defibrillator at our local Costcutters in Articlave
- Articlave, Coleraine, UK
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.
We are a team of local people trying to raise £2500 to install an Automated External Defibrillator at our local Costcutters in Articlave, not only are we trying to raise money but also awareness on the impact this emergency life saving equipment will have on our community.
We have set a target of £2500. We hope to achieve this through organising a series of events throughout November in our community and decided to set up a just giving page for those that would love to help our cause but maybe just can't get to one of our events or simply want to donate via this platform.
As I said previously we will be organising a series of events in the community so please check out our Facebook page and give us a like https://m.facebook.com/Articlave-Community-Defibrillator-Fundraising-Group-159248115006897/ to keep upto date on what events are coming up and keep in with our progress as we grow towards our target goal of raising £2500.
So now you're maybe asking why is this Defibrillator important in our community? You may know there's a few located close to our area but none exactly in the heart of our community. These life saving machines are so important and can quite literally be the difference between life and death, if defibrillation through a defibrillator occurs within 1 minute of the victim collapsing, the victim's survival rate increases to 90%. Check out the table below for some more amazing facts and figures.
Please donate generously we never know when it could be ourselves or our loved ones needing this life saving equipment.
