Communities Helped So Far…
A defibrillator costs £1,500, however the fundraising that HeartSWell do enables us to contribute towards this cost for certain groups.
We ask that community, public sector, schools, charities and not for profit groups pay £500 towards the cost of a defibrillator. Unfortunately we cannot contribute towards the cost of placing defibrillators in businesses and therefore ask that businesses pay the full amount of £1,500.
To enable us to continue to our defibrillator programme, we ask that our defibrillator recipients support the charity by undertaking fundraising activities and raise awareness of the need for this life saving equipment. There are many ways you can get involved and our aim is always to make fundraising fun!
