    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.

    Story

    Giffnock is suburb/village on the outskirts of Glasgow (pop 12,000)

    We have a busy shopping centre, but at the moment we do not have a public access defibrlllator.

    Giffnock Community Council and Giffnock Village business initiative are jointly trying to raise money to acquire a defibrillator

    140,000 people die of heart failure each year in the UK. When someone has a cardiac arrest, the first five minutes are crucial for survival so having a defibrillator handy can mean the difference between life and death.

    We need to raise at least £2000 to purchase a defibrillator and house it in an easily accessible location in Giffnock.

    Please help us to save lives by donating for a defibrillator.

      One week on - and we're nearly half way there! Sincere thanks to everyone who has donated so far. Please continue to help us reach our target - every little helps, so modest donations are every bit as welcome as some of the more substantial ones we have received so far.

      If this is used even once, it was well worth a small donation. Well done Jack.
