Join communities up and down the country and fundraise for your community defibrillator project

Community Heartbeat can offer a number of facilities to help you towards your goal. Let us know what you require by filling out and returning a Fund-Raising Project Assistance Form. If you have any bespoke requirements, are having trouble fund-raising or would like to request something that is not listed then please do not hesitate to contact us


Back to Fund-Raising

Letting people know about your project is always important, but raising awareness about the possibility of a life-saving device and how it can help the community, not to mention be used by anyone training or not is invaluable. We have several different handouts with facts, figures and useful information, what to do in the event of someone collapsing and much more. 

The staple of a fund-raising campaign, let us know how many you require and where to post them to! We have both buckets and tins available, in addition for those that prefer to donate in private we also have donation envelopes that can be filled out and posted back to us for free. When you have finished with your collecting tins and buckets we kindly ask that you return them so we can send them out again to other sites. In addition to this if you need advice on obtaining a collection license just ask us.


Community Heartbeat can hold funds for your project that are kept in a reserve account for your Defibrillator project. We do this by providing a unique six-digit reference code which we ask you note on all monies being banked with us, either via cheque, BACS, online or via donation envelopes.

Any monies paid in without a reference are put into a suspense account until the origin of the funds can be verified. Account balances are available on request. 

We do not just bank your money without finding out where it comes from first!

We can set up a unique online page for your project and provide a link. We provide running totals on request, or can provide a page that displays a total via Charity Checkout. We are also registered on Just Giving so if you wish to set up your own page just link to us and make sure to get in touch and let us know about you!

Need something bright, bold and large?

We have you covered, we have several pop-up stands & posters available for events and fundraisers that are light and easy to set up.

Let us know your requirements and we can recommend accordingly.

Whilst CHT does not always offer grant funding, we can help point you in the right direction and assist by providing you with a complete breakdown of costs for a project, facts, and figures such as Ambulance Response times for your area and in-depth information about the efficacy of community defibrillator schemes.



Please make sure you have read and understood this disclaimer - It will be assumed that you have read prior to CHT receiving any request. CHT are not responsible for your fund raising, nor your cPAD operations, but may assist in both. CHTs only aim is to support the installation of a cPAD scheme in the most cost effective way possible adhering to Best Practice, and help save lives in your community. This website, and any downloaded information, is for information only on how to go about obtaining and installing a cPAD, and other relevant information. All copyrights and trademarks are recognised. All support for the cPAD will be undertaken by the village committee responsible and via standard manufacturers warranties. Any training organisation will only be responsible for the initial awareness training and not for the functioning or maintenance of the AED. Please do not send any monies to CHT until you have registered your scheme with us, and have agreement from the local ambulance service for the establishment of a cPAD scheme. All schemes must be registered with the local ambulance service (CHT will also undertake this or you can do via this site, but this does not remove responsibility for you to notify the local ambulance service of your AED location). 999/112 (ambulance) must always be called prior to using a cPAD equipment. VAT may be applicable if your organisation is not an eligible body as defined by HMRC. All current or historical claims for VAT will be met by the local community. All schemes will be asked to sign an agreement taking responsibility for their own fund raising and donations to CHT, and then the operation and maintenance of the cPAD equipment. All CHT provided schemes will need to manage their maintenance through the WebNoS online system as a condition of CHT support. It is your responsibility to maintain the equipment in working order and to make sure the local ambulance service is aware of this. WebNoS makes this possible and also acts as an audit trail for management of the equipment. Sites provided by CHT and not using WebNoS may be disengaged from the ambulance service CAD systems. Any web site showing defibrillator locations is for information only, and should not be used in preference to dialling 999. CHT works in close cooperation with the UK ambulance services. Always dial 999 in an emergency
