Story

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 farky3301@gmail.com

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.
