Weʼre raising £20,000 to Buy Defibrillators for surrounding villages of Beeford and Leven in memory of their GP Dr Alan Sykes.

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

My stepfather Dr Alan Sykes sadly passed away on the 5th July 2017 after serving the Beeford and Leven area for 33 years working at the Leven and Beeford Medical Practice. He was hugely respected and loved by colleagues and patients in the community for the work he has done and the people he has helped and saved. One person he had saved suffered a cardiac arrest outside Beeford surgery to which Dr Sykes successfully used a defibrillator and saved his life. He was not one for recognition but always looked at how things can be improved and how rural villages did not have public defibrillators in case of an emergency. During the sad time of his passing some of his patients thought it would be a great idea in tribute to Dr Sykes to have a fundraising event to install public defibrillators for emergencies in case ambulances which have to travel did not make it in time.

We hope to raise enough money to start putting defibrillators into local villages but with the mind-set of continuing to help more money to extend through East Yorkshire.

We hope the local media will get on board and help promote our campaign so we can buy as many as we possibly can in order to save lives for East Yorkshire.

This will also hopefully highlight that airliners do not carry defibrillators as this was Alan's biggest grievance that they do not carry them since they're simple to use and can save people's lives.

Please join us in Dr Alan Sykes' memory to buy as many defibrillators as we can for the local communities.

Thank you.

    Our next plan of action is to help local villages and communities fundraise for Defibrillators in their community and organise large events (One hopefully being announced over the next week or two) for all the villages Dr Alan Sykes served to attend and help reach our goal of giving a Defibrillator to each village that either does not have one or requires an additional one in the areas surrounding Beeford and Leven. If these events go well we can look at expanding over East Yorkshire.

    Fantastic news! We have now raised over £5500, This includes over £2000 on the Just Giving page and around £3500 from donations made at the local surgeries and events that people have kindly put on such as coffee mornings. I would like to thank everyone who has donated and supported the fundraising activities, you've made a fantastic effort. This means we are now ready to start planning our first instalment of Defibrillators that will be at Beeford and Leven Surgery. Hopefully by the start of October but we will keep you updated!
