£535raised of £2,000 target by 11 supporters

    Weʼve raised £535 to help fund a defibrillator for Cheam Park.

    Cheam, Sutton, Surrey
    Funded on Saturday, 17th June 2017

    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.

    Story

    I was recently on a first aid course as I run a BootCamp in the lovely Cheam Park.

    I was not surprised when I found out that heart attacks cause more than a quarter of deaths in the UK each year. I was shocked however with the difference in survival rates with and without a defibrillator.

    If you are treated by a first aider and given CPR you or a loved one have a survival rate of 2-5%.

    If you are lucky enough to be treated quickly with a defibrillator (within 3-4 minutes) you survival rates jump significantly to 74%!

    With developments in technology absolutely anyone can use a defibrillator to save someones life!

    Do you use Cheam Park to walk a dog, exercise, play with your family, enjoy the flower beds or sports facilities? If not you will know numerous people who do?

    Well, we don't have a defibrillator ... please donate to allow us to make our Park more safe for all those that take enjoyment from it.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!

    I have always enjoyed Cheam Park. I was surprised to find out that this community recreation area does not have a defibrillator for use in the event of someone suffering a heart attack. Read my story to find out why we need to raise money for a defibrillator now. Thank you.
