raised of £2,000 target by 37 supporters

    Weʼve raised £920 to help fund a Public Access Defibrillator at Darley Dale Primary School

    Darley Dale, Matlock, UK
    Funded on Thursday, 21st February 2019

    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.


    When a heart stops, you're up against the clock

    Defibrillators, AEDs, defibs, - whatever you call them: they save lives.

    Lives of all ages, every single week.

    Sadly 270 children die in the UK per year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school.

    The newly updated Department of Education guidelines urge all schools to have a defibrillator. All new schools have one on site.

    If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%, which is incredible.

    The Defib Store based in Tideswell have generously agreed to provide us with a high specification fully automated defibrillator plus cabinet at cost price, saving us well over £1000

    We are aiming to raise the £2000 required by the end of December. This will allow us to purchase and install an external Defibrillator accessible for all the community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Please help us if you can, every penny counts!

    Thank you, Darley Dale Primary School PTA

      These should be in every school, especially in more rural areas. Fully support this
