Weʼre raising £925 to Help fund a defibrillator in our local community
- Pewsham, Chippenham, UK
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.
When someone collapses with a cardiac arrest one of the most effective ways to get it going again is with a sudden powerful electric shock - and that's the life saving job a defibrillator does. Living and working at the school in the lovely community of Pewsham and seeing a need for an AED (automated external defibrillator) has inspired me to raise money for this vital piece of equipment. The step by step instructions make it a simple device to use which can dramatically increase the chance of survival. If the need ever arose, l would feel at ease knowing that the AED was readily available and making a difference to the community.
For me, my part in this is to combine my love of running with raising the funds needed and that is why l will be running Chippenham Half Marathon to raise money for an AED. Please donate what you can and support our local community of Pewsham.
