Kendal Campaign

 

Hand on Heart Charity’s latest campaign comes from the idea of an associate and supporter of the charity, Annette Ritson. Having seen the impact of having life-saving equipment made accessible in schools across the UK, Annette felt compelled to do something in her local community to help provide schools with defibrillators and life support training for the pupils in the area. 

After speaking to her local Business networking group “Kendal Women in Business”, it was decided that as a group, they would like to work with Hand on Heart to set up a campaign with the aim of making all of the schools in the Kendal  area “Heart Safe” as it had been done previously in communities by Hand on Heart. So far fundraising activities have included;

  • Kendal Live Event – a festival of local singing and dancing talent with all proceeds going to Hand on Heart and Alice Escapes 
  • Petitioning of local councillors – two of whom have donated part of their locaility budget funds for the purchase of defibs and trainig for at least 2 schools
  • Grant applications
  • Big Lottery funding
  • Collecting money at local events
  • Planning an end of summer ball

You can keep up to date with the campaign on the dedicated facebook page here
