Three Schools To Get Defibrillators Thanks To Fundraiser's Efforts


A star fundraiser from Houghton Regis is hoping that enough money will have been raised to enable three more local schools to be equipped with lifesaving defibrillators.

Sarah Pyatt Beer, who's son, Jake, lost his life through Sudden  Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, has campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness of SAD, and to raise funds to get the heart re-starting equipment into local schools.

'Jake's Bash', on Saturday 5th Sept at Dunstablians Rugby Club, has raised £2300 so far, and a further £600 was recently raised at a Zumbathon with the support of Houghton Regis Leisure Centre.
Sarah hopes the new funds will be enough to supply defibrillators to Manshead, Houghton Regis Academy, and Barnfield skills College.

Sarah told Houghton Regis News Desk, "I would like to say a special thank you to the GoHoughton restaurant in Parkside Drive, for laying on a wonderful buffet, and to extend my thanks to Kishor Patel, the restaurant owner, for a special donation."

Previous fundraising efforts have enabled defibrillators to be purchased for local schools, All Saints Academy and St Vincent's.

Further information and donations can be made at http://www.sadsuk.org.uk mentioning Jake Gallagher, so that it goes to the correct place, in memory of Jake.
