    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Hello my name is Austin Brennand and I am five years old. I live in a small village called Ansdell in Lancashire. That's me in the picture when I was two and a half years old with the first defibrillator I donated to Park View in Lytham.

    Earlier this year I was told it was used to help save the life of a two year old girl and so I told my Mummy and Daddy that I'd like to raise money to buy another one, for all the people who live in Ansdell.

    When I was a baby I was born with a rare heart condition called 'Tetralogy of Fallots'. It meant there were four things wrong with my heart. When I was three months old I had open heart surgery. It took a village to fix my heart, what with all the doctors, nurses, blood donors, anaesthetists, specialists, volunteers... you get the idea! Now I'd like to help keep the hearts of my village beating too.

    I'm going to be a busy boy this summer with lots of ideas for fundraising. On Sunday 7th July I'm cycling 10k (without stabilisers) along the Fylde Coast!!!

    Pennies before the big day, and cheering me along the route, will give me a huge boost and help raise money to buy a defibrillator. Even better if you join me for the ride!

    Thank you, Austin :O)

    Note: It's anticipated the defibrillator will be placed on the main high street in Ansdell on Woodlands Rd in the heart of the village close to the shops. Exact location tbc. The defibrillator will be accessible 24/7 and will be registered with the local ambulance service who will provide the access code in an emergency.

      Calling all electricians on the Fylde coast - We need YOUR help! Austin has done an incredible job of raising enough money to buy 3 defibrillators and cabinets for the Ansdell community and now we need an electrician, or two or three, to install them when they arrive early September. We'd really appreciate it if you could spread the word amongst friends and family and email any recommendations to: Almost there... love 'The Brennands' x

      I am a very old friend of your Grandfather and I was lucky enough to be present when he dropped the heavy end of a sledge hammer on his head, which may explain a lot!! Congratulations!!
