Defibrillator Fundraising Appeal MVH Needs Your Help! Updated: 20th January
Mayford Village Hall has for many years provided leisure & educational facilities for the Village and the wider community. The Trustees are always seeking ways to improve on the available facilities and have now determined that the provision of a Defibrillator at the Village Hall will be welcomed by all. Now universally accepted as a lifesaver, a defibrillator is one of the few items of advanced medical equipment that can be used to save lives by anyone without extensive medical training. In order to progress this initiative, the Trustees engaged with London Hearts, a charity aiming to help and support communities with the provision of heart defibrillators and to teach CPR/defibrillator skills and were successful in securing a £300 grant towards the £1,500 costs of purchasing, installing & maintaining a defibrillator. In addition, £500 has been donated from the Kinch Fund as the money was not able to be used for the annual Mayford Over 60’s Tea Parties in 2020 & 2021 due to Covid. The Trustees have agreed that a number of fund-raising activities may be held to raise the remaining money to complete the project.
