    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 nonprofit.

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

    Story

    We are a rural community in Norfolk. Ambulance crews carry defibrillators which aim to restore the heart's normal rhythm in the event of a cardiac arrest  (heart  attack) but ambulance response times have increased over the past few years. Quick access to a community public access defibrillator (CPAD) can increase the chances of survival and reduce the damage caused by a cardiac arrest. We are therefore fundraising to purchase a CPAD to be sited at the village hall for access 24/7 and for use by the public.

    Cardiac arrest can occur to anyone of any age. A CPAD can be operated by any member of the public, even without training. Please help us raise funds for this vital piece of equipment . Both Brooke Parish Council and South Norfolk District Council have pledged funds towards this project and the Village Hall Committee have agreed for it to be sited outside the village hall.

      My last message should of course have said the target has been amended to £600, not £500!

      Many thanks for the latest contributions. Due to some generous donations paid directly in to the defibrillator account, I have been able to lower our target on justgiving to £500-so we're 83% of the way there!

    I'm raising money for a defibrillator as it can save lives and reduce the extent of hypoxic brain injury caused by the reduction in oxygen supply to the brain as a result of cardiac arrest.
