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.
The local community in the hamlet of Agneash (near Laxey) have come together to raise funds for a box to house a defibrillator machine. Having had the defibrillator donated by Craigs Heartstrong Foundation.
The idea is that the defibrillator will be publicly available to come to the aid of someone who might suffer a heart attack while in Agneash, whether this be a local person, a walker, cyclist or motor biker. Since Agneash is in a rural location it may take an ambulance longer to respond to a 999 call and this defibrillator could save a life.
Please help us raise the funds we need (if we happen to raise more than needed the remainder will go to Craigs Heartstrong Foundation).
Thank you in advance.
