Ciarans Cause are focusing on sports clubs and communities in Warrington and surrounding areas.
We will continue to organise more charity events. But we can only achieve this with the ongoing support and the kind and generous donations from the communities and the support of our partnerships with Zoll Medical and ThisisLivin and our Ambassadors Peter Kindness, Ben Harrison and Iwan Thomas.
What we have achieved
March 2014 we achieved our first goal. Ciarans Cause donated the last remaining defibrillators to schools in Warrington. 60 defibrillators are based in primary/junior schools in Warrington.
Along with the defibrillators, over 3500 people have had defibrillator awareness training and are now equipped to use their life saving skills.
Training will continue to grow alongside our partnership with and ThisisLivin! Team.
On 17th April 2012, 7 year old Ciaran Geddes went out to play football with his friends. Unfortunately he didn’t make it to the pitch. He suffered a suspected cardiac arrest and, although first aid (CPR) was given within minutes, he sadly passed away. Had a defibrillator been present he would have stood a greater chance of survival.
Ciarans Cause Charity is a non- profit charity to help raise funds to supply schools and sports clubs and communities with defibrillators and free awareness training, so that they have the equipment ready to use in the vital first few minutes so that every young person has a fighting chance, if the unthinkable happens.
With the support and the generosity of people Ciarans Cause can continue our promise.
