As you may be aware, the club has been raising money to purchase two defibrillators for us use at our home games in the village, at Dovehouse, and just outside the village at our HRI location.
Through some incredible donations from parents, members of the community and local businesses we were gaining on our first target of £850 to purchase the first one.
We were then contacted by Shoezone, who have a Charitable Trust and wanted to donate enough money to buy a defibrillator out right. So in a little over 2 weeks of fund raising, we’ve almost raised enough money to buy both.
Thanks to Jon Fearn at Shoezone for putting our case forward.
At the time of writing we are £188 shy of our overall target. A massive achievement, so thank you once again from everyone at the club to put as in this position so quickly!
Once this round of fund raising is completed, we’ll turn our attention to hopefully purchasing a lockable box to be placed at Dovehouse, for one of the defibrillators, which means the whole community will have access to be able to use it as well.
