Defibrillator campaign

031_Stoke_City_defib.jpgI am launching a campaign to install defibrillators throughout Boothen & Oak Hill ward.  I was inspired to do this by two experiences.

Firstly, when visiting the then Britannia Stadium a couple of years ago I noticed that they had defibrillators at various points around the ground and wondered whether it would be possible to do something in town.

Secondly, when on holiday in Skye I met Ross Cowie who had had a heart attack in Portree and felt he was only alive because, by chance, an ambulance was close by.  He subsequently set up a charity to supply defibrillators and train users throughout Scotland.  I was particularly impressed that primary school children on the island of Raasay were trained to use them. 

I have teamed up with Stone-based AEDdonate to provide defibrillators at The Commercial Inn, and London Road Ale House on London Road who are hoping to fundraise during January/February 2017.

London Road Ale House has a collection box on their bar - please give generously.  Both pubs will be organising activities over the next few weeks and I shall add their events here.
