Redditch United FC are proud to announce there working partnership with SADS UK, at least 12 young people a week tragically lose their lives to cardiac conditions that cause a Sudden Arrhythmic Death (SAD). Overwhelming evidence shows that defibrillators save lives – Fabrice Muamba (footballer) is still alive due to them - yet only 10% of UK schools have one in the building.

SADS UK are asking for the Government to ensure that there is a defibrillator in every school to prevent other families being devastated by a sudden young death in the way in which my own family was.

The UK Resuscitation Council suggests a defibrillator should be used within 5 minutes of cardiac arrest, given that the average response time for the ambulance service is 8 minutes, it's vital that schools have a defibrillator within the building. Defibrillators cost around £1,000, isn’t this a small price to pay for equipment that’s been proven to save lives?
Apart from us raising money to help make this happen Redditch United FC are also in the process of getting a defibrillator which we hope will cover the schools around us until they get there's and any local community events, it will also be on stand by for all 1st and youth home games and for the supporters as well.
