Defibrillators:

We’re all aware of how vital a defibrillator can be in saving a life.

With that in mind the management team of the Cornwall O50s/60s have purchased four defibrillators so that each one of our four championship teams has one with them at every game for the 2022 season and beyond.

Thanks to generous personal donations and some sponsorship we made the decision to buy the four defibrillators, even though we still to need to raise around £500.

Here’s how you can help us raise that final £500

Firstly you could make a personal, anonymous if you wish, donation towards the funds – everything adds up so whether you give £10, £20, £50 or a £100 it all really matters. To make your donation simply transfer the money to the 050s/060s account (details below) and in the reference box put: DEFIB

Secondly you could ask people that you know, particularly those in business, to support the fundraising through sponsorship. We would be looking for £50 and upwards from businesses and we will acknowledge each company on our sponsors page. Please ask them to donate directly via the bank account, again using the reference: DEFIB. If any of them need some sort of receipt we will be able to supply that.

None of us know when we might need the services of one of these machines. We hope they are never needed but I’m sure you’ll agree knowing that they are there just in case they are needed provides great comfort.

So please do whatever you can to help us achieve this fundraising goal.
