Defibrillator for playing fields

Connor Garwood from John Good Shipping, Hull office, wanted to raise money to get a permanently installed defibrillator at Broadgates Playing Fields in Walkington, East Yorkshire. Connor plays in AFC Walkington who use the fields regularly and have a senior veteran team.

Cardiac arrest can affect anyone, especially in older age and during sport. In many cases a defibrillator can save a life if it can be used within a few minutes.

Connor completed the challenge to walk the Yorkshire 3 Peaks within 24 hours and raise £453! With double match funding the total raised was £1359 which exceeded the amount needed to get a defibrillator immediately and contribute towards a replacement in 5 years.
