    Weʼve raised £370 to Purchase 2 Defibrilators for the village of Ravenstone

    Ravenstone, Coalville, UK

    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.

      Great meeting with some of the ladies from the village to help with other streams of donations. We will finalise how/where you can donate in person for those family and friends who dont want to do it on line. Thanks to the Village pub, The Kings Arms for hosting us and being the first to say they would be happy to receive donations for the funds. I will amend the target to reflect the Parish Councils kind offer to purchase 1 defib

      Many thanks for all your support so far. I have co-opted a few more residents to help with alternative ways of donating and we will be meeting on Monday in the Kings Arms to discuss. 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
