Defib Fund

For older news stories please visit the news archive page

The need for this equipment has been repeatedly highlighted by the frequency of tragic deaths due to cardiac arrest on and off the cricket field. Cricket grounds are, by their nature, usually remote sites away from hospitals and not in easy reach of emergency services. There is only a vital FIVE MINUTE period before permanent or irreversible damage can occur. A portable defibrillator can be the saviour of an otherwise catastrophic situation.

In partnership with the ECB, we have supplied and distributed over 350 portable units to cricket teams and clubs across the UK.  Through our supply partner The Community Heartbeat Trust, the units are available at a huge discount to real costs and include training, insurances, notification to local emergency services and post stress counselling.
