Walking to make our Parks ‘Heart Safe’

Starting at 8.00am on Saturday 11th May at Fairways Holiday Park in Bawdrip, volunteers from all of our Parks will be walking a total of 24.7 miles as we visit each of our 9 Holiday and Residential Parks in order to raise funds to install life saving Defibrillators on as many of our Parks as possible.

According to the defibshop ‘over 30,000 people suffer an out of hospital cardiac arrest in the UK every year and without immediate treatment 90-95% of these victims will die’. Cardiac arrest is a condition which can affect us all, regardless of age, gender or health – but it’s not all doom and gloom, in the event of an attack, if CPR and defibrillation are provided within 3-5 minutes of collapse, a victim’s chances of survival can increase by a staggering 68%.

With your help, we can help to increase survival rates in our local community and make each of our Parks ‘Heart Safe’. By making a small donation to our fundraising campaign, you will be helping to protect not only us, but everyone in the local area and even yourself from cardiac arrest.

We would love for all of our tourers and holiday home owners to get involved, so if you would like to join us and take part please contact caroline@westcountryparks.co.uk

We massively appreciate your ongoing support and any donation will help us to achieve our goal.
