We believe that venues should be installed with potentially lifesaving equipment such as defibrillators. When a sudden cardiac arrest occurs, the casualty is usually relying on the ambulance service and first responders, and although they try their best, they can be a fair distance away from the scene.

    Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation have ensured that every school in their hometown has a defibrillator on site
