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 charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I would like to do some fundraising in to purchase some defibrillators for Halesowen town centre. Other than one in the Halesowen Medical Centre there are none in town that readily easy to use 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Four years ago my son had a christening booked in St John The Baptist Church in Halesowen centre. Upon arrival we were kept outside because an elderly lady from the Sunday morning service had gone into cardiac arrest. It took the ambulance a short while to attend and they worked on her inside the Church. I don't know whether she made it but the vicar did a lovely a prayer for her within our christening service.

These things do happen and for every minute without CPR or a defibrillator it reduces survival chances by 10%. First aid kits can usually be found in all stores but due to the costs of defibrillators they are not readily available.

A basic portable machine costs from around £650 a unit. Top of the range external cabinets cost £2000 each one. Eventually it would be nice to have one of each, one for Somers square side and one for by the Church or nightlight side. It would be really nice if the local community would get on board to help us raise some funds. Even £650 will get just one which could save a life!
