DEFIB FUNDRAISING NIGHT FOR PEOPLE WITH HEARTS

Saving Lives In Salford Charity Night
Saturday 14th July 7pm
Lower Kersal Social Club £10/£5

From Lower Broughton to Langworthy, and from Irlam to Ordsall, the aim is to get life saving defibrillators into doctors' surgeries all over Salford, right in the centre of communities. The British Heart Foundation needs to find £8000 to get the final eight defibs into place and has arranged a top fundraising night next Saturday at the Lower Kersal Social Club…

See here for full details…


Cheltenham Jazz Festival awards winners We Are Illusion, who play everything from The Beatles to the Stones, and Northern Soul supremo Dave Gee are headlining the Saving Lives In Salford Charity Night at the Lower Kersal Social Club next Saturday, aiming to raise enough money to get life saving heart defibrillators into eight doctors' surgeries all over Salford.

Defibrillators are portable equipment used to save people who have had a heart attack and, if one is used within the first five minutes of an attack it's estimated that survival rate increases by 30%. The idea of putting them right in the centre of communities is to save time and, therefore save lives.

16 GPs' surgeries in Salford have been identified as locations for the defibs but the British Heart Foundation needs to raise £8000 for the final eight machines. The locations are…

• Higher Broughton Health Centre
• The Willow Tree
• Lower Broughton Health Centre
• St. Andrew's Medical Centre
• Irlam Clinic
• Springfield House
• Irlam Medical Centre
• Ordsall Health Centre
• Salford Medical Centre
• Langworthy Cornerstone
• Sorrell Bank Medical Practice
• Walkden Medical Centre
• Ellenbrook Medical Centre
• The Lakes Medical Centre
• Orient Road Surgery
• Limefield Medical Centre

"We urgently need the lovely people of Salford to help us raise the vital £8k to place the remaining eight defibrillators in GP Practices in Salford" says Shirley McNally of the British Heart Foundation "These defibrillators can save lives, perhaps yours or someone very dear to you, so please help us by supporting the Saving Lives in Salford Charity Night. Come on, come along, have fun and know you are helping to save lives…"

As well as the live acts the night includes a disco, raffle and auction.

Saving Lives In Salford Charity Night
Saturday 14th July 7pm
Lower Kersal Social Club £10/£5 (pensioners)

I believe this is an excellent cause, however its so sad that a good initiative has to resort to the begging bowl again. These life saving machines are not that expensive.... and in the long term they could save the NHS money. I assume these medical centres have agreed to accept one gratis? What I dont understand is why they havent invested in them already? Surely their annual spending budgets would stretch to it?

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?
