Weʼre raising £500 to Buy defibrillators for local communities.

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.
This cause means so much to me, In 2019 I was involved in a medical emergency where I performed CPR for 8 minutes until the ambulance service arrived and gave 3 shocks with the defibrillator. Thankfully the paramedics turned up within 6 minutes BUT this was in a big town with a huge hospital within a few miles.
I live in a beautiful rural village and the reality is the paramedics are likely take longer, may even have trouble finding homes as we don't have street lights and a lot of homes are off the beaten track. Which is why my goal is to fundraise to flood communities with defibrillators and give residents free defibrillator training. I want everyone to have the knowledge and confidence to help someone, should they be faced with a similar situation to me. My first stop will be Horsted Keynes, I would like to raise £500 towards a defibrillator and provide the community with free training.
