£65raised of £600 target by 7 supporters

    Weʼve raised £65 to Help to fund a defibrillator for Blurton Reds Lads and Dad's football team.

    Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 17th November 2017

    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.


    Two years ago my 5 year old son, at the time, joined a local grassroots football team which began with a handful of children. That handful of children has now grown into 7 teams across three age groups, ranging from under 7's to under 9's.

    Each week our superstars meet for their weekly training with approximately 70 children.

    Our training venue does not currently facilitate a defibrillator. Although hopefully it is never necessary, this piece of kit could potentially be the difference between life and death in the event of a cardiac arrest.

    A defibrillator is so crucial because:

    * Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in young athletes. Most often the death occurs during training or competition.

    *A defibrillator can increase the survival chances by 68%. Without this 90-95% of cardiac cases will sadly die.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, all donations whether great or small, will be hugely appreciated by all.

      Hi over 2yrs ago my son joined a local football team. I absolutely love the early Sunday morning's and late Friday evenings watching him & his friends play football. As the club has now grown to around 70 kids, their safety is paramount & a defibrillator is extremely important.
