New stretch target

£100 will buy a defibrillator for the premises, the stretch target will buy an external community use one 

Wirral UKTA is a not-for-profit sports club. We would like to buy a defibrillator for our premises. If we raise enough, we will buy an externally mounted, community use defibrillator accessible to anyone. If we don't raise enough for this then we will buy one to keep inside our premises, but which we will of course make available to anyone in the community needing it whilst our premises are open. An example would be the many children who play football on Arrowe Park on a Saturday morning and weekday evenings.

  • Every year in the UK, around 30,000 people suffer sudden cardiac arrest outside of hospital. 
  • 2 people under the age of 35 die each week from sudden cardiac arrest
  • 270 children die each year from sudden cardiac arrest on school premises
  • If a defibrillator is used within 3-5 minutes, survival rates jump from 6% to 74%!
  • Automated defibrillators require little to no training. They talk you through what to do, they cannot shock a heart that does not need shocking
