HERT HELP: Abbots Langley charity nears landmark of 100 defibrillator donations

The Abbots Langley charity Wayne’s Fund is inching ever closer to reaching the landmark milestone of donating 100 defibrillators to help local communities.

Resident Wayne Pope sadly passed away days before his 30th birthday in 2005. Since then, his brother Glynn, who founded the charity, has led Wayne’s Fund in its mission to raise awareness of sudden arrhythmic death syndrome and install defibrillators across the country.

The charity recently donated its 99th defibrillator to Abbotts View Farm near Aylesbury.

Glynn told ABBOTSnews: “I never dreamed it would ever be anything like this.

“When Wayne’s Fund started 19 years ago, we were looking at getting one defibrillator into a local school. To be on the verge of reaching 100 defibs is incredible.”

Speaking on why a donation was made to Abbotts View Farm, Glynn remarked that the site is extremely popular but is in a secluded spot, making it a natural location for a defibrillator.

The charity is now planning ahead for its 100th defibrillator donation and is on the lookout for a good cause to support.

Glynn said: “We are looking for a big hub or business with a lot of footfall and where a lot of people will benefit, and to give everyone peace of mind should the worst happen.”

Anyone looking to install a defibrillator is encouraged to find out more by heading to the Wayne’s Fund Facebook page at
