. . . . Claxton & Sand Hutton Community Defibrillators Sponsors . . . .
The Community Heartbeat Trust provided literature and lots of help and guidance and in June 2012 Liz and Bill initiated the Defibrillator Appeal to raise the required funds.
Leafleting and sending out the Community E-news to every household and writing numerous letters to businesses and charities soon resulted in donations being received, initially from villagers and then through the help of Clare Wood our local Councillor from North Yorkshire County Council we secured our largest donation. This was followed by York Lions Club, Claxton & Sand Hutton Parish Council, Rose Trading, Therapy in Praxis, York Round Table, Strensall & District Patients Fund, Aims Construction, Aldbyfield Nurseries and surplus money from the discontinued crime watch in Claxton & Sand Hutton, the appeal continued and the support that was received was so rewarding.
"Community Heratbeat Trust" provided literature and lots of help and guidance through Neil Marsay of the North Yorkshire Ambulance Service. Following the successful fund raising Martin Fagan of the "Community Heratbeat Trust" came to the village hall and instructed everybody on how to use the Defibrillators.
North Yorkshire County Council
North Yorkshire County Council Ryedale Area Committe, promoted by Councillor Clare Wood who represents the Hovingham and Sheriff Hutton division,
set the ball rolling with a sizeable donation
which gave everybody great encouragement.
A.I.M.S. Construction Ltd
A.I.M.S. Construction Ltd of Claxton who offer complete Interior Refurbishments.
York Lions are part of an International organisation consisting of 44,000 clubs and 1.4 million members worldwide. To a large extent they put there resources into
the local community - they also help any national and International disasters etc. They found our project to be a worthy of a donation to help this life saving scheme.
As an example, they are donating £300 to two lads (this coming Saturday evening at the Ship Strensall) who recently cycled around the world to raise £20,000 to Wateraid in an attempt to eradicate river blindness caused by unclean drinking water.
It's been a good week supporting your project at
Claxton & Sand Hutton and Wateraid
