Raising funds to help safeguard communities from the UK's biggest killer

Our Vision

Sudden Cardiac Arrest kills approximately 100,000 people a year in the UK.

AEDdonate is committed to improving survival from out of hospital, cardiac arrest, supporting the placement and use of an automated external defibrillators to local communities.

We achieve this by giving Schools, Pubs, Clubs and Communities the opportunity to fundraise for an AED which can then be placed onto the PAD scheme.

This will safeguard local communities from the UK’s biggest killer- Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). By enabling AEDs to be fundraised for, we can work together to minimise SCAs and save lives.
