At Port Talbot Town FC, we have been running an appeal to raise funds for a defibrillator and a lockable case to go with it.
Since the appeal started, we are grateful to have been offered a defibrillator as a donation, which is of course a massive help. However, we are still raising funds to go to the cost of a lockable cabinet.
Every second counts when you’re having a cardiac arrest. There are 8000 sudden cardiac arrests outside hospital in Wales every year, and only a 3% survival rate.
A defibrillator is able to restart the heart during a cardiac arrest, and can save lives. When used, the survival rate can increase to 50%
Please help us reach our target by donating also share our page on your social media outlets .
You can donate via this link https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/porttalbottownfc
Or if you prefere we have a collection container in the clubhouse for any donations you may wish to give, no matter how small. Any amount will be greatly appreciated .
