    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.


    There are no defib machines within easy reach of our workplace, the nearest one if 5 minutes away and there and back would take 10 minutes.

    Time is precious when it comes to using an AED. We would like to locate one at our workplace, which would also be available for public use via 999.

    Why do you need one? The horrible facts Approximately 30,000 Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur every year in the UK
    In 2013, the Emergency Medical Services attempted to resuscitate approximately 28,000 people after they suffered an Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest
    Of the 28,000 people that emergency services attempted to resuscitate, only 8.6% survived and were discharged from hospital
    Approximately 80% of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur at Home; 20% will occur in public places
    The current rate of initial bystander CPR in England is reported to be around 43%
    12 people under the age of 35 die every week due to sudden cardiac arrest in the UK
    270 children die in the UK every year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school
    When someone has a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by 7-10%
    Currently, only 20% of cardiac arrest victims are in a ‘shockable’ rhythm when the EMS arrive; this figure can be increased if more cardiac arrest victims received immediate, effective CPR from bystanders
    If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%
    The emergency services average response time to a cardiac event related incident in an urban area has increased from 8 to 11 minutes
    Without immediate treatment, 90-95% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims will die.
