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.

Story

The Welsh Ambulance Service uses a system called ‘GoodSAM’ to alert volunteer medics such as myself, to life threatening 999 calls. So even if I’m not ‘on a shift’, I will know if there’s an emergency in our community.

Although I’ll be alerted if you or someone in the community calls 999 for a life threatening situation, I may not always have the necessary response kit with me to save a life, as we share resources between volunteers. So I'd like to buy a life saving 'First Response' kit, to always have with me - for use within our community.

I have already been approved by the charity Welsh Hearts, to purchase a defibrillator through them - but I need to raise a minimum of £995 (that’s just the for the defibrillator!)

My target is to raise £2000 to purchase a complete kit. Any money raised which is not spent on this, will be donated to the Welsh Ambulance Service's North Cardiff CFR Scheme.

As a thank you for all the kind donations, I will be delivering CPR training sessions for FREE in the community, starting in January and continuing throughout 2019. Watch this space for details!
