    Strangford, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 30th October 2016

    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

    I am going to swim the stretch of water from Portaferry to Strangford in an effort to raise enough money to install a communal defibrillator in Strangford. As the local community pharmacist I am only too aware of the needs of the village. We're a rural village and a cardiac events are not uncommon. The quick access to a defibrillator can be the difference between life and death. The device will be secured outside and if necessary can be accessed within seconds.
    Support us. Give us the money to give someone a chance.
    Come and see me splash my way across Strangford Lough.

      Well, despite the currents and the changing wind we got across in 21 minutes and 6 seconds. Thank you for all your support. We have raised over £4,500 which will be more than sufficient for the defibs, cabinets and training. Any money left over will be distributed to local groups at a later date. Thank you all for all your support both financially and otherwise. It was a fun day and I was overwhelmed by the crowd waiting for me on the quay. We'll get the defibs and cabinets in place ASAP; hopefully within 2 weeks. Thanks again. Shane

      Out for a swim round the quay and yacht club in Killyleagh with Gary Murray (my new mentor as Neil Logan is quickly proving useless).
