Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is one of the UK’s biggest killers and claims around 2,000 lives each week.  That is 250 people a day or one person every five minutes.  This includes 270 children a year who die in schools after suffering an arrest.

On 3 January this year, the Cornishman newspaper, working alongside a local Penzance charity the “Ronnie Richards Trust” launched a campaign to raise awareness of the affect of SCA and to get 100 lifesaving defibrillators into our local schools, communities and public places.More on this news update »Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
