raised of £1,350 target by 11 supporters

    Weʼve raised £360 to help fund a life-saving community AED Defibrillator for Monkwick & Berechurch, Colchester.

    Funded on Friday, 3rd May 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.


    When someone suffers a cardiac arrest, every second counts. An Automatic External Difibrillator (AED) can provide rapid emergency help from members of the public before paramedics arrive.

    Many lives have already been saved by these important devices, but Monkwick and Berechurch are yet to have one installed locally. This fundraiser aims to provide an AED for the local community which will be located at the Parade on Queen Elizabeth Way.

    This AED fundraiser is supported by Colchester Community First Responders and Councillor Dave Harris.

      Thank you to all who have donated. We are now in the process of sorting permission to mount the AED. This will take some time as it's a planning issue, but rest assured Cllr Dave Harris is on the ball. The AED has been purchased and the device will be fitted as soon as it can be. We'll keep you updated.
