Weʼre raising £500 to Contribute towards a Defibrillator for Cheam Park, Sutton, Surrey.
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.
I was recently on a first aid course as I run a BootCamp in the lovely Cheam Park.
I was not surprised when I found out that heart attacks cause more than a quarter of deaths in the UK each year. I was shocked however with the difference in survival rates with and without a defibrillator.
If you are treated by a first aider and given CPR you or a loved one have a survival rate of 2-5%.
If you are lucky enough to be treated quickly with a defibrillator (within 3-4 minutes) you survival rates jump significantly to 74%!
With developments in technology absolutely anyone can use a defibrillator to save someones life!
Do you use Cheam Park to walk a dog, exercise, play with your family, enjoy the flower beds or sports facilities? If not you will know numerous people who do?
Well, we don't have a defibrillator ... please donate to allow us to make our Park more safe for all those that take enjoyment from it.
