PADs, Public Access Defibrillators, we don't know when we need one but when we do, we need one fast.
Over 150,000 people a year die from heart & circulatory disease in the UK. Over 100,000 people are admitted to hospital due to a heart attack. Using a defibrillator within 5 minutes improves the chance of survival by 55%
I have had friends & relations both die from & survive Heart Failure. PADs are not a cure, but they offer some people a hope, a better chance of surviving when the unexpected strikes.
I work for the British Heart Foundation as a retail store manager. I'm raising funds independently to ensure the PADs are located in our local community in support of the public, all health & medical services, as well as the BHF.
Each PAD & cabinet.costs around £2000. Initially I have 3 locations in mind, hence the target of £6000.
Free CPR training can be arranged by contacting me at the store on Prospect Street.
You probably have your own experience of people you knew & loved who may have benefited from the chance a PAD offers. Please consider giving any amount you can afford or raise to support this & lets get these potential life savers installed. Thank you, sincerely, Carlton.
