Weʼre raising £3,000 to provide defibrillators for Westbury on Trym

Bristol UK

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.



Our fundraising started when Westbury-on Trym “lost “ it’s 24 hour a day access defib (previously outside the Victoria pub in Chock Lane) due to it’s relocation. Our collective efforts with other fundraisers have now raised enough for two defibrillators but we are continuing to raise money for more defibrillators to provide wider coverage around the Westbury on Trym area.

A cardiac arrest victim needs immediate CPR and urgent defibrillation to give the best chance of survival. CPR and early defribrillaton can double someone's chances of survival. The more defibrillators we have the better!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us and donated. If you haven't donated already, even a small amount will help us to fund more AEDs and save more lives.

    Great news! We have now raised enough funds for two defibrillators for the village to be located at the Methodist Church Hall, Westbury Hill and the car park entrance to The White Lion. These have been ordered and should be with us in a few weeks time.
