Weʼve raised £437 to Provide four Defibrallators along the Middlewich section of the Trent & Mersey canal.
- Middlewich, United Kingdom
- Funded on Wednesday, 20th September 2017
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.
As a volunteer with the Canal & River Trust helping boaters through the three Middlewich Locks, it occurred to me that this is an area where the potential for life threatening incidents is quite high. Although there are a number of Defibrillators in various locations around the town, apart from one at the Newton Brewery Inn, they were all too far away to be effective in a situation where seconds count. Four locations have generously agreed to have Defibs installed, Kings Lock Chandlery, Middlewich Narrowboats, Andersen Boats, and The Big Lock pub. Andersen Boats have very kindly offered to fund their own Defib, so this is an appeal to raise funds for the other three.

Bob, this is a great idea. We are a canal town, and the waterside is by far the likeliest place these vital pieces of equipment are going to be needed.
