£155raised of £700 target by 15 supporters

    Weʼve raised £155 to buy St Paul's Community Primary School and Nursery, in Spalding, an AED (defibrillator).

    Spalding, UK
    Funded on Thursday, 25th October 2018

    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 charity.

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


    The Department for Education recommends that all schools in England should have an AED, yet no funding is available.

    Every year 270 children will die in school after falling victim to sudden cardiac arrest and every week in the UK, 12 fit and healthy young people die of undiagnosed cardiac conditions.

    Survival rates fall by 10% every minute without action, yet using a defibrillator within three minutes of a cardiac arrest can improve a person's chance of survival as much as 70%.

    These statistics alone are enough for us to say that a defibrillator is an essential piece of equipment that St Paul's needs.

    Please donate to this worthwhile cause that could save a life. Any donation is very gratefully received.

    Thank you

      A huge thank you to everyone who donated. With offline donations as well, we now have enough to buy the defibrillator, a wall mount, extra pads and a prep kit. Hooray!!

      These should be in all schools and workplaces, the increase in the chance of survival with one speaks for itself.
