Thanks to the generosity of local residents and local groups the defibrillator appeal has so far raised £816.

Folks, if you haven't already donated please do so. These are the facts:

  • 30,000 sudden cardiac arrests happen away from a hospital in England — 60,000 is UK estimate
  • survival rate from SCA is dismal — less than 1 in 10
  • chances of surviving SCA reduces by 10% for every minute without shock from AED
  • 270 children die each year at school from SCA
  • 20% of sudden Cardic arrests take place in public places
  • it would take 8 minutes minimum to retrieve a defibrillator from the garage back to the village hall
  • If debfibrillation takes place within 3 to 5 minutes, chances of survival increase from 6% to 74%
  • £1200 is the target for installing a AED outside of the village hall
  • £816 is the amount raised to date

There is no doubting how vital AEDs can be in saving-lives. Prompt delivery of defibrillation can result in survival rates as high as 75% (Resuscitation Council, UK). Having one close by could mean the difference between life and death.

We hope this persuades users of the Village Hall and others of the need for a second AED in the village and perhaps encourage you to contribute a little something to the appeal.

Donations can be made by cheque to Curry Rivel Village Hall or on line using the Village Hall crowdfunding page. CLICK HERE
