As part of our efforts to make club environments safer and more community minded, we have agreed to distribute information on behalf of Red Cross about access to funding for their Project Defib.


The project is to help clubs access funding and then purchase a defibrillator at subsidised cost to be available at the club venue.


“Every year an alarming number of Sudden Cardiac Arrests occur in our sporting clubs. Statistics have proven that immediate access to a defibrillator can lead to over 70% survival rate if applied within minutes of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest*. Current survival rates for out-of -hospital cardiac arrest are only 1 to 5 percent when a defibrillator is not available”.

It is a worthy cause to prevent loss of life due to Sudden Cardiac Arrest.







Comment Guidelines: The SportsTG Network is made up of players, families and passionate sports followers like you who have a strong opinion about sport. That's great - we want you to have your say and share your thoughts with the world. However, we have a few rules that you must follow to keep it fun for all. Please don't be rude, abusive, swear or vilify others. Apart from some pretty serious sport sanctions, we also can ban you and report you if things get out of hand. So play fair and have fun, and thanks for your contribution.
