    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

    In excess of 100,000 people die in the U.K. every year from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Fewer than 10% of people suffering SCA survive and yet with speedy intervention this figure can be increased dramatically. It might be a perfect stranger that requires immediate aid or more likely a loved one of your own and not just adults, SCA can strike anybody irrespective of age or gender.

    3 things are required to improve survival rates and you have only a few minutes to get things underway, firstly start CPR, resusitation, secondly get someone to call 999 and listen to their instructions thirdly they will tell you if there is a nearby community AED, if possible send somebody to collect it. Sadly there are not enough AED,s in most communities and I plan to raise the funds to address the issue in our area.

    Initially I aim for 1 to be installed in the central part of the Farndon Fields development but I hope to get more, an ambitious endeavour, but I feel passionately about this subject, my life was saved by a paramedic administering CPR and another using a defibrillator. This started a passion to create a situation where fewer people succomb to SCA. With the support of our community I aim to improve the chances of survival even if just a few people.
