AED for The Packet Station, Falmouth

Posted on 12th March 2019

Over the past 2 months we have had two separate events where we needed a defibrillator, and didn’t have access to one. Luckily both people survived but it only takes one person!

With the amount of people we have coming and going through our pub, especially elderly people, I think we urgently need one. This would also help paramedics as the journey to the nearest 24 hours A&E is 30 minutes away.

There are 1000 deaths by cardiac arrest every single day, and 30,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests in the UK alone. If a AED is used on a patient, within 3-5 minutes, the chances of survival, go from 6% to 74. The nearest AED is a 2 minutes run away (and is only open 9 hours a day), by the time the patient collapses, we realise we require an AED, we figure out where the nearest one is, and return, it’s going to be about 6/7 minutes minimum, and then it’s too late.

Here at the Packet Station we care about the health of our customers which is why we are fundraising, so that you are yours are always within distance of this life saving piece of equipment!

Thanks you,

From everyone at the Packet Station Falmouth

Reclaim Gift Aid

Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows AEDdonate to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to AEDdonate we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you. Gift Aid is claimed by AEDdonate goes towards the running costs of our Charity.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like AEDdonate to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that AEDdonate will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When AEDdonate receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
