Lucky2BHere saves 3 lives in 5 days!

The approach taken by Lucky2Bhere to encourage communities not only to provide community-based defibrillators but also to engage with training is lifesaving.” [Prof. Steve Leslie, Consultant Cardiologist at Raigmore Hospital].

Scottish Charity, Lucky2BHere has been celebrating the saving of three Highlands & Islands lives in just five days.  Cherill Parry from Gairloch, Ian MacLeod from Inverness and John Burgis from Port of Ness on the Isle of Lewis each owe their lives to quick thinking members of the public, emergency life support training and the availability of a L2BH community device.

Lucky2Bhere is committed to saving lives through education.  They provide communities with Emergency Life Support training before then placing a defibrillator.  Their training provides the essential knowledge, confidence and skills required to act in any life-threatening emergency.

You can read Cherill, Ian and John’s stories on their Facebook page @lucky2bhere and find your nearest L2BH device their our website: www.lucky2bhere.org

“This defibrillator is available to anyone needing it, and can shock the heart into starting again after it’s stopped. Every second counts in a cardiac arrest so it’s vital that someone
can step in to perform CPR and use a defibrillator before an ambulance arrives.”

Fantastic work! Melville Housing Association

The butcher, on Broughton Street, is the first in Edinburgh to install a defib as part of the ‘Butchers at the Heart of the Community’ campaign which has already seen 40 butchers across Scotland raise funds to provide a defibrillator outside their shop
