raised of £1,305 target by 90 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,616 to supply Defibrillator's to Bannnockburn Primary School, St Mary's Primary School, and Bannockburn House.

    Bannockburn, Stirling
    Funded on Sunday, 1st September 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.


    We (Greg & Karen Farquharson, Kevin Wilson, and Danny Letford) are hoping to raise the money required to purchase 3 AED'S (automatic electronic defibrillator) to benefit the community of Bannockburn by completing the Stirling Marathon on Sunday 28/4/19. An AED is required to help re-start the heart when it stops. Early CPR and early defibrillation have been proven to increase the chances of survival when someone has a cardiac arrest.

    An AED costs £900 and the supplier, Trossachs Search & Rescue Team, has agreed to attend both schools and Bannockburn House to teach pupils, staff, etc how to carry out CPR and use the AED, Amazing!

    The initial target of £2,700 has been reduced due to external donations. £500 pounds has been donated courtesy of a recent charity fundraiser "The Rocket's Extravaganza" on the 23-02-19. Thank you very much to all who attended and donated! A further £100 has been donated from Bannockburn Community Council, thank you! A further £455 was donated from the annual Tartan Arms & McQs Cheltenham day. Thanks to all who donated! £200 has been donated by the King Robert Hotel from their recent Mother‘s day fundraiser, thank you very much. We have also recieved external donation's totalling £140. This is why the total £1305 is required.

    Any excess money raised will either be put towards a local charity to be determined or another defbrillator depending on the amount.

    Any help, questions, or suggestions please e-mail

      Just in case anyone is unaware, the final defibrillator was donated to Bannockburn Amateurs FC to store at their facility so teams of all ages will get the benefit. There is around 30 pounds left in the funds which we donate to Local project. Thank you all again.

      Thanks again for all the donations it really is appreciated. Today the funds were transferred over and the defibs will be arriving shortly to be distributed to Bannockburn House, St Marys Primary and Bannockburn Primary. There is money left over as we raised more than expected. We are considering a number of options before making a further announcement in due course regarding the extra funds. Thank you it would not have been possible without each and every one of yous.
