Through our Defibrillators for Schools project we are supporting the donation of this life saving equipment to local primary schools in the Chesterfield area.
Mind Body Spirit’s goal is to keep children safe not only through our great Ju-Jitsu programmes but to help prevent the deaths of the 12 young people who die of sudden cardiac arrest each week in the UK.
Our 2 main aims are:
Raise awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, particularly in the young
Place defibrillators in local primary schools
Our long term objective is provide every local primary school with a defibrillator that will be available for use in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.
We will be supporting our local Primary Schools by donating a defibrillator directly to the School
Our short term aim is to donate one AED to a one local primary school then we will continue fund raising to achieve our long term objective providing an AED to as many local primary schools as possible.
Our 1st Defibrillators for Schools fund raiser was held on Sunday 28th April, when Sensei Michael and our friend Sensei Ian Arbon walked to the Summit of Ben Nevis, the United Kingdom’s highest peak
Our 1st Defribrillator was presented to Newbold Church School on Friday 12th July
Sensei Michael gave the students a background of the reasons for our fund raising & donation of AED’s to local primary schools and then showed pictures of the walk up Ben Nevis with Sensei Ian to give them an idea of how the money was raised.
Many thanks to all of you that have donated, please look out for details of our next fund raising activities.
Any local school that would be interested in a future donation please get in touch.
