We are delighted to say that 3 public access defibrillators will be available in Riverside, Stirling courtesy of Scottish registered charity Lucky2bhere. They will be available at all times.
We are collecting funds to pay for the defibrillators and also to help with the vital work that Lucky2Bhere do. We hope that you will make a donation to help repay Lucky2bhere for our defibrillators and to allow them to carry on their good work in Scotland. Remember that 25% will be added if you choose to Gift Aid your donation.
Defibrillators can save lives. When someone suffers a cardiac arrest, the chance of survival falls by 10% every minute without action. However, with CPR and the use of a defibrillator within 3 minutes, the chance of survival could be as high as 70%. These devices can be used by people, often with little or no training, to re-start the heart of a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
We are a group of Riverside residents working on this project with Riverside Community Council and with the support of our local Councillors. Lucky2behere provide defibrillators and training to communities across Scotland (see ww.lucky2bhere.org for further information on their activities).
