Today we installed The Karen Ball Funds ‘40th’ part funded Community Public Access Defibrillator into the unused BT kiosk in BISBROOKE 

The local people of Bisbrooke rallied together to raise the rest of the money needed to provide this easy to use life saving device! Nita Champion (Resident) pictured with Juliet Burgess-Ray (KBF) in the kiosk and holding the Defibrillator came up with the idea as she has recently moved into the village. This village in Rutland has many people passing through including ramblers, joggers and cyclists, we feel that should anything happen to anyone in the area where a defibrillator is needed we could help!

Nita Champion would like to thank The Karen Ball Fund for their generous donation, Martin Fagan from The Community Heartbeat Trust for all his help with the project from start to finish and Andy Nourish, Carole Allison, Olwen & Gene Dunbar, Eddy Dorman and Peter 

Martin from CHT will be presenting an awareness session in October to the community of Bisbrooke to help them understand how they can help in an emergency and use the defibrillator with confidence!


Nita Champion, Carole Allison, ?, Juliet, Olwen, Andy, Peter and Eddy?


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
