Community Defibrillator Appeal

WF3 Kindness and West Ardsley Action Group launch fundraiser to buy defibrillator for community.

Local charity WF3 Kindness (project of Morley & District Lions CIO) and the West Ardsley Action Group are fundraising for a defibrillator in the area.

An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) can be used to give the heart an electric shock when it has stopped beating normally in a sudden cardiac arrest.

Every minute that goes by without using a defibrillator reduces the chances of survival by ten per cent, however using a defibrillator within three minutes of a cardiac arrest can improve a person’s chances of survival by as much as 70 per cent.

There was a community effort in 2017/2018 to purchase a defibrillator which is located outside The Hare & Hounds on Batley Road, West Ardsley. When a person is in cardiac arrest and in need of a defibrillator time is critical and even the short journey from one side of the village to the other could make all the difference. 

We are fundraising to purchase another defibrillator to be located outside the British Oak pub on Westerton Road which will be stored in a secure cabinet which is accessed through a code provided by the emergency services.

If possible and with the support of individuals, groups and businesses we would look to purchase additional defibrillators to be located around the community (such as Lowry Road estate and Old Dewsbury Road).

Please support our campaign and make a donation, these defibrillators are there for everyone in the area and can be the difference of life and death.

Please help if you can!
