Update on Defibrillator Fundraising

31 Mar 2018
By Liz Waterman

At the time of writing we have raised £2,419.00 of the £3,500.00 we aim to raise to provide a defibrillator and its maintenance and insurance for the next 10 years. 

We have two fundraising activities planned that we hope you will feel able to support and in addition the proceeds of the May Café will also be donated.

Children’s sponsored walk around Old Sarum now Sunday 13 May

This is being organised by the parents of our village school and had to be postponed in March due to bad weather. The plan is for the children to walk from the School around Old Sarum with adult family members. 

If you are a family living in the village with children attending another school in the area you are very welcome to join in and can sign up and collect sponsor form from Mrs Munt in the school office.

Healthy Heart Day   - This event has been CANCELLED  (update 11/4/18)

Originally planned to take place on Wednesday 18th April.


Once the defibrillator has been installed we will be running a community defibrillator Seminar that will demonstrate the use of the defibrillator and explain how it works and its benefits to the community in saving precious minutes in the treatment of sudden cardiac arrest. This event will be open to all and no special skills are required just your willingness to play an important role in the event of a medical emergency. The date will be advised in due course.  Key fobs with the cabinet access code will also be available to all village residents and businesses.

Donations can be made by anyone either in the form of a cheque made out to ‘The Heartbeat Trust’ or on the online donation page https://communityheartbeat.charitycheckout.co.uk/Stratford-Sub-Castle

All cheques should have our specific six digit reference number - STR004 - written on the back.  Cheques and cash donations should ideally be placed in a special envelope obtainable from Arnold Harrison, Heather Balston, Liz Waterman and Annalise Hecks (school parent).  Cheques can be posted direct in the postage paid envelopes.  Cash in envelopes should be given to any of the above, not posted.
