Simon Weller had a sudden cardiac arrest at the Robin Hood Pub Tunbridge Wells on 25th February when we were sitting down for our first meeting of the flat owners' association. He was there for our meeting. I knew him well and we were liaising on the building management. Simon was only 46. Unfortunately there was no Defibrillator at the pub. We (myself and Siana Cavanagh) tried to revive him with cardiac massage until Ambulance crew arrived who attempted a full CPR. Unfortunately Simon could not be saved. We would like to donate a defibrillator to the pub in Simon's memory. This will serve the whole community around the pub. Evidence shows that defibrillators save thousands of lives in UK and is much needed in all public places. A community defibrillator can increase chance of survival from 1% to 60% in out of hospital cardiac arrests. For every minute that passes without defibrillation, there is 10% reduction in chance of survival. I appeal you all to donate generously to buy a defibrillator and a warming cabinet to go with it. A memorial plaque will also be placed near it. I will cycle 100 KM (in segments) to raise the money and will make first donation myself. The Kiln Bank, Robin Hood pub and Simon's family are all on board. Robin Hood pub management will actively help this project and look after the defibrillator. Thanks a lot for your support to this noble cause. Please don't forget to gift aid your donation to maximise the benefit.
