Story

When a heart stops, you're up against the clock!

So if you had the chance to make sure there was lifesaving equipment in your neighbourhood, would you take it? We thought you might.

Because the next time someone's heart stops it could be your parent, your friend, your neighbour. That's why we need you to make a small donation towards a public access defibrillator.

As you probably know, defibrillators, AEDs, defibs, amazing heart fixing machine - whatever you call them: they save lives. Lives of all ages, every single week.

Survival rates fall by 10% every minute without action, yet using a defibrillator within three minutes of a cardiac arrest can improve a person's chance of survival as much as 70%.

But there just aren't enough of them in communities around the country. Too many people aren't given a chance because there isn't a defibrillator nearby - and let's remember that cardiac arrest can happen to anyone.

Help us make sure wherever you are, a defibrillator is never far away.

The defibrillator will be located at McDonald's in Tiverton which is situated on the business park at Lowman Way. The public will have access to the equipment 24/7 should they ever need it.

I'm sure you'll agree this is a fantastic cause to donate to and be able to make a small contribution.

Thank you for taking the time to read and for any donations already made.

    Just to update you all...... We have now reached our target and have been able to buy the defibrillator and cabinet. This wouldnt have been possible without all of your kind donations and help with fundraising events. Thank you all so very much we really appreciate your support! The equipment is waiting to be installed and will be registered with The Southwest Ambulance Service. In the event of an incident in the local area, members of the public will be able to access the defibrillator 24/7. Thankyou all once again 😊
