Hazel Slade Primary School was one of our most successful campaigns to date. The school managed to fundraise for the full amount needed for an AED and 24/7 public access external cabinet within just 8 days of their campaign beginning.
By utilising the will of their entire community, Hazel Slade were able to fully fundraise for their own AED quickly and easily, as well as raising awareness of such a vital cause. Using our crowdfunding platform, they were able to allow the entire community to access the campaign and donate towards it if they wanted to. Our online crowdfunding platform alone managed to accumulate £1,267 of the final sum.
The pupils of the school then took donations at a local supermarket, as well as holding other fundraising events throughout the community. This not only raised funds for the campaign, but also allowed the campaign to be broadcast to the entire community, therefore raising vital awareness.
Speaking to Hazel Slade’s local newspaper following their AED press release, Head Teacher, Mrs Brealey said:
“£2,027 was raised within 8 days, of which £1, 267 was privately funded both locally and nationally. The remaining funds were generated from two school fundraising activities. It has been so marvellous to see the whole community get behind this worthwhile project. Working with AEDdonate, the process was simple, easy and fun. 8 days after the start of the campaign, we received our defibrillator.”
