Hi i have created this page to fundraise to buy a defibrillator package to help make our community a safer place.
Currently, over 30,000 people suffer an out of hospital cardiac arrest in the UK every year, without immediate treatment 90-95% of these victims will die.
The only definitive treatment to Sudden Cardiac Arrest is immediate CPR along with a life-saving shock from a defibrillator. Having a readily available defibrillator in public locations will help to increase survival statistics.
In the event of a cardiac arrest, if CPR and defibrillation are provided within 3-5 minutes of collapse, a victim’s chances of survival can increase from 6% to 74%. Cardiac arrest is a condition which can affect all of us, regardless of age, gender or health – no one is immune.
The package we are looking to fundraise will include a defibrillator along with a wall cabinet to store it safely and accessibly so it can be quickly retrieved in an emergency.
With your help, we can help to increase survival rates in our local area by making our community a heart safe environment. By making a small donation to our fundraising campaign, you’re helping to protect not only us, but everyone in the local area and even yourself from cardiac arrest.
Any donation will help us achieve our goal and we massively appreciate your support.
Thank you for you support
