Defibrillator for Old Dunstonian Sports Ground and its local Community

Defibrillator for Old Dunstonian Sports Ground and its local Community

Old Dunstonian Sports Ground urgently requires a Defibrillator (or AED), to be located outside the club for easy public access, 24/7, to assist with events of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)!  Why?

  • 100,000 deaths from SCA occur each year in the UK.
  • 270 children die in the UK every year after suffering a SCA at school.
  • 70% of SCA occur outside of a hospital environment.
  • 50% increase in surviving a SCA with CPR. 33% increase in victim’s chance of survival when an AED is used.
  • 90-95% of SCA Victims will die without immediate treatment.
  • If an AED is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 mins of SCA victim’s chance of survival increase from 6% to 74%.
  • The emergency services average response time to a cardiac event incident in an urban area is 11 minutes.
  • For every minute that goes by where a victim of SCA does not receive treatment, their chance of survival decreases by 10-14%.
  • Only 22% of people in the UK would be confident of performing CPR on a stranger.

Old Dunstonian Sports Ground and the surrounding area (within the prescribed walking distance to an AED of 2 minutes) includes many sporting facilities/clubs such as rugby, cricket, archery, squash and tennis (connected to the Park Langley Club), croquet and The Warren Annex, which is the site for football and other sports etc.  In addition to the many social events held at the clubhouse, where there is a bar facility etc, numerous members of the local community, many of which are children, walk, ride or drive past the Club and moreover, many pupils from the Langley Park School for Boys frequently use the facilities to play their sport.

As you can see, the Sports Ground is very well used by many adults and children and all those who use and pass it should be very aware there is no defibrillator to assist in the event of a SCA so we’d welcome your donation to help us install one outside the Old Dunstonian Sports Ground Club house, which would be readily accessible by the local community.

Every £1 would help us achieve this and if we raise more than enough we would put any excess towards a second unit in a nearby well used facility.

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.
