Defibrillator (Fund Raising)

We need your help. 

After lengthy discussions around the bar we have decided to purchase a defibrillator for the local community.

This will be placed on the wall outside of the pub where everyone can get access to it 24hrs a day 365 days per year.

I will supply and have installed the electric needed to keep it charge and will of course sponsor it.

This is where you come in

To get the rest of the funds I am looking for a little sponsorship and will also be doing a football card on a Friday-Saturday and Sunday in the pub if that’s okay with yourselves. Please help to support this fund raising and I am sure that it won’t take long to reach the total amount to purchase one and get it installed.

Thanks Paul

Does my community need a defibrillator?

Yes, your community needs a defibrillator. For every minute someone is in cardiac arrest without CPR and access to a defibrillator, their chances of survival drops by up to 10%.

Having a public access defibrillator (PAD) available in an emergency can be life saving, especially in rural areas where ambulance response times may be longer.

You can check the response times of the ambulance service in your area on the ambulance response times website.

What are the benefits of having a defibrillator in my community?

Less than 1 in 10 people in the UK survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. This has been partly attributed to two factors that communities can change:

  • there aren’t enough people prepared to perform CPR when someone has a cardiac arrest
  • there aren’t enough defibrillators.

By having a defibrillator in your community and by training people in CPR, you can play an important part in saving more lives.

  1. Think this is a very worthy cause. Hope it never has to be used. But it would be nice to know it is there.

  2. Hi Paul I’d very much like to help my mums just been diagnosed with a serious heart condition literally in the last few weeks and strangely enough I said go mum I wanted to get trained in CPR just in case. !
