Defibrillator Fundraiser Success!

Thanks to your kind donations on our justgiving page and in the raffle we have raised an amazing.... £976 in the Defibrillate Fundraiser!

Durham Climbing Centre hosted a fun afternoon of climbing challenges, our first event in such a long time! The slackline, hanging boulders and rope climb all made an appearance on the day for the one-off event with climbing routes from Impact Route Setting!

This amount raised has allowed us to buy a dual functioning defibrillator for Durham Climbing Centre!

As a customer facing business, our climbing centre is visited by hundreds of climbers and spectators every day.  All staff hold Level 3 paediatric First Aid or equivalent. Having a defibrillator onsite and staff trained to use this device means we can offer an extra level of first aid to visitors. 

If a defibrillator is used within the first minute, the survival rate can be as high as 90%. If a defibrillator is used within the first 3 to 5 minutes, the likelihood of survival is roughly 74% showing that having a defibrillator close by really makes all the difference.

Special thanks to all the local businesses for donating raffle prizes and to GB Para Climber Sophie Boyd for setting up the JustGiving page and helping to plan the fundraiser!
