Story

I am hoping to raise enough funds to purchase 2 defibrilators for the village of Ravenstone.

During a recent enhanced first aiders course I was astonished to learn that the chance of surviving a heart attack with only CPR (mouth 2 mouth) is only around 7%. BUT if you get a defibrilator to the casualty then their chances for surviving rise to over 70%.

I am hoping that the residents and businesses of Ravenstone help me achieve the target and in turn help to save lives.

I will amend the target to reflect the Parish Councils kind offer to purchase 1 defib

I am aware that some members have raised concerns as to where this money is going- well let me reassure you.All.money raised will be donated to the Parish Council for them to purchase and maintain the defibs. Thank you for all your kind donations so far, keep it up! Sharon
