Hampton Water Resident Association are working alongside a charity AEDdonate to raise funding and install a defibrillator for the community.
Working hard for the past few months we have an outline agreement to have the unit installed outside of Peterborough WakeParks clubhouse at the centre of Hampton water country park.
Having the defibrillator installed means that it can be deployed by the local ambulance trust 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, its just allows patient treatment to commence immediately.
30,000 people die each year from out of hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), 620 of these are people under the age of 35 and 270 of these deaths happen to children within schools. If defibrillation takes place within the first three minutes of a SCA, the patient’s chances of survival increase by upwards of 80%.
If you can help the group by donating, supporting with a fundraising event, or taking on a sponsored challenge then please contact us and we can inform the team that you would like to help or indeed make direct contact.
If you are interested in becoming a Community Champion yourself or are aware of any places which may benefit from having public access to a defibrillator then please contact us on01785 472224or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will help you manage the campaign from start to finish, providing fundraising materials, a page just like this one and in some cases funding* helping you to help your community on its way to becoming heart safe.
