A semi automated LIFEPAK CR2 defibrillator costs £1,959.60 and a fully automated LIFEPAK CR2 £2,062.80 however the fundraising that HeartSWell do enables us to contribute towards this cost to ensure that as many defibrillators as possible are placed in our communities.
We ask that where defibrillators are being placed for full public access, organisations pay from £500 towards the cost and where defibrillators are not publicly accessible that organisations pay from £1000 toward this cost. For more details please read our Frequently Asked Questions
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!
