100,000 people a year die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), 620 of these are people under the age of 35 and 270 of these deaths happen to children within schools. If defibrillation takes place within the first three minutes of a SCA, the patient’s chances of survival increase by upwards of 80%.
My parliamentary team and I are doing the Potters ‘Arf marathon Sunday 10th June. The team will be walking (none of us are natural athletes) and hopefully enjoying the sunshine! We are raising money for AED donate – hoping to provide life saving equipment for our local communities in Central.
You can help us with our fundraising campaign by making a donation at this link, by taking on a fundraising challenge or simply by doing your everyday online shopping with major retailers through the website Give As You Live and nominating AEDdonate as the charity you wish to support.
If you are interested in becoming a Community Champion yourself or are aware of any places which may benefit from having public access to a defibrillator then please contact AEDdonate office on 01785 472224 or email@example.com. We will help you manage the campaign from start to finish, helping you to help your community on its way to becoming heart safe.
