    Weʼve raised £2,045 to Raise money for a new Defibrillator

    Peterborough, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 15th December 2017

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Folksworth Responders was established in November 2015.

    Myself and Tony both Communty First Responders attend 999 calls around the Peterborough area usually the areas of Folksworth, Stilton, Yaxley, Sawtry, Glatton, Holme and even reached out to the Ortons and city centre! Together we on average volunteer 450-500 Hours a month. Between October 2016 - October 2017 we attended 143 999 calls in the area! This year alone we have been dispatched to 7 cardiac arrests and multiple times we had to use our defibrillator during Resuscitation. We provide urgent care in the critical minutes before an ambulance arrives on scene. We enjoy what we do but now we need YOUR Help.

    We have until 3rd December 2017 when i will be sky diving out of a plane at 13,000 feet to raise a target of £2000 for a new defibrillator plus other equiptment before ours runs out of date - I know what you're thinking ... why jump out of a perfectly good plane... i guess i must be crazy especailly since im terrified of heights!!!! The reason that it is £2,000 is that £200 of the donations will pay for the fund raising sky dive and then the rest will go towards the defibrillator.

    Please help us continue to respond to these calls alongside the East Of England Ambulance Service. You never know... you could be the next patient myself or tony attend to. We need your help. Please help us make the difference in our community. Thank you.

      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
