Choice Care Fundraising - bringing defibrillators into our communities!

DATE: 06.03.2024

We want to share our new fundraising campaign with you. We have secured part-funding for defibrillators to be installed outside 63 sites across Choice Care and we now need to raise the remaining funds to make up the difference. This will enable us to bring defibrillators that can be used by the whole community to Choice Care sites across England and Wales.

Each defibrillator will be registered on The Circuit, the national defibrillator network, providing a vital overview of available defibrillators nationwide.

With each defibrillator costing £1,000, each Choice Care site will be carrying out fundraising, we have set up a Go Fund Me page here which anyone can support: https://gofund.me/9cc749bf . We have planned various fundraising events, including smaller gatherings across our services and even a climb up Snowdon. We will also be hosting an online auction to further support our efforts, and will keep you informed about all these activities!

We are also asking local businesses to help us reach our fundraising goal, and here's how you can get involved:

•     Make a Donation directly to our GoFundMe page

•     Display a Donation Point: by placing a donation point in your place of business to encourage contributions from your customers and employees.

•     Donate an Item for our Auction.

We will be keeping you up to date about our progress on a regular basis and when and where the defibrillators are being installed, so you know they are available for use. Please do contact us directly if you think you can help here: [email protected]

Together, we can ensure that vital resources like defibrillators are readily available when seconds count.
