Defibrillator for the Giddings Appeal

Great & Little Gidding Community Public Access Defibrillator (CPAD) APPEAL

We as a Parish are currently trying to raise £2000 to purchase and site a Defibrillator and Cabinet.

Defibrillator and Cabinet

Cardiac Arrest or Heart Attack claims 150,000 – 200,000 lives each year in the United Kingdom. If a person’s heart has stopped the only thing that will get it working again is an electrical charge passed through the heart muscles. The first few minutes are the most vital and often an ambulance will be over five minutes away.

If you would like to help fund raise or donate towards this worthwhile equipment please contact;

    *****NEWS FLASH*****

    We are nearly at our target thanks to our amazing residents and a couple of local businesses.
    Our aim was £2000 and I am happy to report we are at £1805 !!!
    This cabinet will be fitted to the outside wall of the village hall very soon.
    Although it can be easily operated by everyone, we will have some spaces available for anyone who is interested in getting some training so they can confidently use it if ever the need we’re to arise.
    There is still time to contribute as every donation no matter how large or small will help in a big way.
    Just get in touch if you would like to donate or volunteer for the training.
    Thank you
