Health, disability & well-being

Funding level: Up to £1,000

Description

Aynsley Insurance Brokers have chosen to become a Community Champion and help raise funds for defibrillators in Hanley and the local community.

100,000 people a year die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). It is the UK’s biggest killer, killing both adults and children. By making defibrillators accessible to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, this figure can be reduced. Defibrillation within the first 3 minutes of an SCA can increase a patient’s chance of survival by upwards of 80%.

We need to raise £2000 for each defibrillator.

On the 28th September we held a charity golf day and raised £1000 and so we are still £1000 short of our target of donating our first defibrillator into the local community.

To be able to bring somebody back to life and be able to give them a second chance is amazing. To be able to supply this equipment and put it into the community for all to use should they require it, to think that it may save just one life (though it can be used many times) is fantastic.
