Festive Fundraiser!

Help us reach our target for the Sculthorpe Moor Defibrillator Fund...

As the expansion of Sculthorpe Moor Nature Reserve continues apace, we are taking some additional precautions to make sure that visitors are as safe as possible whilst enjoying the reserve. As well as extending the boardwalk to provide safe access, we are going to provide two defibrillators. One public access machine will be sited at the visitor centre and the other at the new Wetland Hide, which is in a remote part of the reserve. The hide has been equipped with off-grid solar power to operate the defibrillator

It is a sad fact that some 30,000 out of hospital deaths from Sudden Cardiac Arrest occur each year in the UK – 270 of these deaths are schoolchildren. However, fatality rates are cut by 50% if a defibrillator is used in conjunction with CPR.

We have been fortunate to have been given sufficient funds for one defibrillator and, this Christmas, we are appealing to our online supporters to provide the second one. We are working with another charity AEDDonate who will give us half the amount needed, so we only need to raise £750 to provide this lifesaving equipment.
