    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

    goPhysio is fundraising for a defibrillator for outside our clinic in Chandlers Ford. We are donating 50% of the cost and raising the additional 50% from the local community and businesses. With the nearest one currently 0.3 miles away and only available during certain hours, this could genuinely save lives.

    Why do we need it?
    When someone has a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by 7-10%. If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%. Without immediate treatment, 90-95% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims will die

    What is it?
    A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest.

    How can you help?
    By donating towards the defibrillator, it will mean there is a device available which can be used 24hours a day, unlike other local devices which are within premises so only available during opening hours.

      Thanks to everyone who has donated so far. It already shows what great community spirit we have. We have also raised over £80 from our guess the sweets game which will be added to this total so far.
