The Chairman's charities and appeals
This year the Chairman will not be supporting individual charities. Instead:
The Chairman is launching a district-wide, community defibrillator fund-raising appeal too install life-saving machines in outdoor locations across Shoreham, Southwick, Fishersgate, Lancing and Sompting. Once installed, these machines can be installed by dialling 999 and requesting medical assistance, plus an access code.
“We have already done this with great success on Shoreham Beach and SBRA installed two defibrillators last month after a fund-raising drive. I plan to work with local community groups, organisations and businesses to try to ensure that all areas have 24/7 access to these great machines.
I am doing this in memory of my late father, Brian Hollebone, who died very suddenly from a catastrophic heart attack more than 30 years ago, when defibrillators were not not available. If just one resident's life can be saved, I shall consider it a job very well done.”
