It is our belief that defibrillators should be as common as fire extinguishers. Approximately 95% of people who suffer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), will die before reaching the hospital and at least 60,000 people this year will suffer Sudden Cardiac Arrest. With effective community initiatives in place, the survival rate could be as high as 70%.
You and your community are the most important line of defence against cardiac arrest and none of this would be possible without you choosing to implement a community defibrillator project in your area.
To those of you about to fund-raise we salute you and will provide as much help as possible to enable you to reach your fundraising goals. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
Letting people know about your goal is always important, but raising awareness about the possibility of a life-saving device and how it can help the community, not to mention be used by anyone trained or not is invaluable. We have several different handouts with facts, figures and useful information and what to do in the event of someone collapsing.
The glue of any fund-raising campaign. Let us know how many you require and where to post them to! We have both buckets as well as tins available. In addition for those that prefer to donate in private we also have donation envelopes that can be filled out and posted back to us for free. When you have finished with your collecting tins and buckets we kindly ask that you contact us and we will arrange collection.
You could get your family, friends or work colleagues together to set up a fundraising group for London Hearts. You could hold traditional events such as quiz nights, bring and buy sales or film nights, the possibilities are endless.
Not only is this a great way of raising money for us but it is also a brilliant way of raising awareness for London Hearts and the life saving work that we do.
There is no limit on the size of your group so whether there are two of you or twenty we want to hear from you.
Fundraising while it should always be fun, it can be challenging to meet your target. London Hearts offers a wide range of grants to assist you in your efforts. Get in touch for more information on grants you may be eligible for, and we can point you in the right direction.
