A Stanmore resident is campaigning to raise funds for a public-use defibrillator to help ‘save the hearts’ of Canons Park.
Roshni Ruparelia’s fundraising page has already raised almost £1,500 from 65 donors, but still needs to more than double that in order for the appeal to be successful to install the defibrillator and maintain its upkeep.
Roshni, who is a local dentist, said: “After calling 999 and performing CPR, using a defibrillator is the best way to increase the chances of someone surviving a cardiac arrest.
“Canons Park is not only my home but holds a special place in the hearts of its supportive and caring community. However, what our community lacks is a public access defibrillator, within reaching distance of the local parade, underground station and public park.
“You can play a vital role in helping save lives in Canons Park by donating any sum to contribute to our appeal.”
Roshni was eager to thank those who have donated so far, but if you are interested in the appeal, head to communityheartbeat.enthuse.com/cf/hearts-of-canons-park—defibrillator-appeal?>
