Cresswell AED Maintenance Fund

Cresswell AED Maintenance Fund

Some 30,000 people a year suffer an out-of-hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in the UK, and, sadly, many will die.
But, if ‘defibrillation’ takes place within the first three minutes of a SCA, the patient’s chances of survival increase by upwards of 50%.

In 2015, the small community of Cresswell in the Staffordshire Moorlands worked with AEDdonate to have a defibrillator installed in the redundant telephone kiosk in the centre of the hamlet. Through its link to the Local Ambulance Service it is now available to the local community 24/7.

Please help with the campaign to maintain this facility –to pay for repairs and maintain the unit itself in up-to-date working order.

Please make a donation using the link on this page.

To see how your money is monitored and spent, please see the community’s dedicated webpage –

Having the defibrillator installed means that it can be deployed in a bid to give the patient the all-important shock to the heart prior to the ambulance arrival. The defibrillator is by no means a replacement to the ambulance service; it just allows patient treatment to commence immediately.

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.

Please ensure that you have inputted your address above so that we can claim your Gift Aid.

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.
