The Killybegs Community First Responders (CFR) group is hosting a family fun day on Saturday, July 27 to raise money to install a defibrillator kiosk in the Killybegs diamond.
The event, which will take place from 10am to 4pm, aims to raise the remainder of funds needed for the defibrillator kiosk, which is to be installed on the diamond Friday, August 2.
The whole community of Killybegs has got behind this exciting initiative by helping to raise the much-needed funding through the Tara pub quiz, the Wild Atlantic Way half marathon, a very successful cyclotron by the Ulster bank staff, a Go Fund Me campaign, and many generous contributions from fishing companies and local businesses.
The addition of the defibrillator kiosk to the town with the newly formed CFR group. who are now all trained and almost ready to go live, is a huge step forward in helping to reduce out of hospital cardiac arrests.
The Killybegs CFR will take part in a fun day fundraiser which includes:
- A 6-hour cyclotron courtesy of JC fitness stationary bikes.
- Free sports massage, free blood pressure and blood sugar checks.
- A bake sale courtesy of Fusion Bistro, Mrs B’s, McLoones bakery, Ahoy cafe and many local bakers.
- Face painting by Marzena Dudek and Amy Foy.
- CPR and defib demonstrations and how to use the Heimlich manoeuvre on choking Charlie manikin by CFR instructors.
- Irish dancing by Isobel Cunningham’s group
- Music by Rosaleen Boyle, St Catherine’s band, Naoise Coleman and Anthony Heading, Denny Coleman and The Minertones.
Please support this very worthwhile initiative from this very motivated group of CFRs.
