Venue: Kew Golf Club 120 Belford Road Kew
The Kew Golf Club supported the NFP charity “Urban Lifesavers: No more deaths from sudden cardiac arrest” in 2017. Early in the year, Anne Holland, founder and CEO of “Urban Lifesavers” spoke of the need for provision of defibrillators in public places, the confidence to use them and the lifesaving difference the timely application of a defibrillator can make to a person in sudden cardiac arrest. Anne Holland also conducted a practical session with the defibrillator to raise awareness about the why, when & how to apply an AED.
$11,000 was been raised from our fundraising efforts of the Kew Golf Club which has been donated to “Urban Lifesavers” for the provision of defibrillator packages plus training to five community groups in Boroondara.
Paul Senior, Coordinator Sports Services, Boroondara Council assisted in identifying groups to receive a defibrillator package from KGC. The successful groups are:
• Balwyn Community Centre
• Bowen Street Community Centre
• Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre
• Canterbury Tennis Club
• Hawthorn Citizens Youth Centre
Urban Lifesaver and Kew Golf Club are proud of this initiative and would be pleased to create an opportunity to increase awareness in the wider community.
Members of the press are invited to be present.
