    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.


    Who are we?

    Heart Beat Eccleston is a local community campaign, working to increase the provision of potentially life saving defibrillators across Eccleston, Eccleston Park and surrounding areas.

    The campaign was founded by Councillor Michael Haw, following the death of his cousin Chris Haw, who died suddenly aged 25 of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS). If a defibrillator had been nearby, he may well have survived.

    So far, we have had eight public access defibrillators installed, paid for through active fundraising and kind donations from local residents and businesses. We now want to raise the necessary funds for a defibrillator to be installed at the Gerard Arms Public House, to make it safer for local people, young and old.

    Why defibrillators are important?

    Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the UK’s biggest killers and every second counts. So having defibrillators in communities available for anyone to use in the event of an emergency, is absolutely vital.

    Every minute without CPR and reduces a victims survival rate by 10%.

    Only last week, a man's life was saved by a defibrillator at Sutton Leisure Centre, after he suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch, whilst playing walking football. St Helens Star - 7 November 2018: 'Footballer's life saved by team-mates and leisure centre staff after heart attack'

    Show your support today

    It's simple, defibrillators make all the difference. That is why we campaign and fundraise for defibrillators to be installed across our local area.

    We hope that you will find yourself in support of our work, and feel able to get involved and join us on the drive to save lives together.

    With best wishes,

    Your Heart Beat Eccleston team, working in partnership with Mark Hayes (Manager) and the Gerard Arms Public House team.

        Good luck Mike and the Gerard Arms team. Having a defibrillator at that location will make it safer for everyone.
