STOKE ROW DEFIBRILLATOR APPEAL
YOU SUFFER A HEART ATTACK IN STOKE ROW TOMORROW, THE AMBULANCE MAY NOT GET TO
YOU IN TIME TO SAVE YOUR LIFE.
IF THERE WERE A DEFIBRILLATOR SOMEWHERE ACCESSIBLE IN THE VILLAGE, YOU HAVE A
MUCH INCREASED CHANCE OF SURVIVING.
A defibrillator is a machine that delivers a
life-saving electric shock to the heart when someone is having a cardiac
arrest. Once open, all you have to do is follow spoken instructions. Given the distance from our nearest
ambulance station, we need this equipment in Stoke Row for the use of the whole
We have formed a small action group in the hope of
raising £3,000 over the next few months to cover the costs of installing the
necessary equipment. The model we are considering is suitable for use by
anyone, even those with no first aid experience. On 6 February at 19:00 in the Pavilion, we have invited Dick
Tracey from the South Central Ambulance Service to deliver a very brief
introductory talk on how to use a defibrillator, which we invite you to attend.
Light refreshments will be provided.
You can donate here
and do please think about GiftAid to increase the value of your donation at no
extra cost to yourself.
