Defibrillator unveiling at Trojan Gym

Installations

Completed Installations

Below you can find more details about our current defibrillator installations, including which ones Defibs4Bristol has directly installed and which ones we have helped others install. Currently this equates to:

  • 32 Direct Installations

  • 6 Assisted Installations

 

For some defibrillators, you'll see details about times they were used on patients. There have also been many instances where the defibrillator was taken out of the cabinet but not actually used because paramedics arrived within the critical window. Even though the defibrillator wasn't used in those cases, removing it shows that it could have been used to potentially save a life if the ambulance had taken longer to arrive.

Direct Installations - 32

Bradgate Surgery, Crow Lane Roundabout, Henbury (Feb 2024)

Located prominently on Crow Lane Roundabout, our 32nd installation broadens lifesaving coverage across Henbury. Conrad Energy's generous funding once again supported the defibrillator, while Simon and Defibs4Bristol fund covered the cabinet and installation. We extend our gratitude to the surgery for housing the cabinet.

Monarch House, Smyth Road (Dec 2023)

This installation was made possible thanks to the kind-heartedness of a local business owner who has worked with us before. Along with the other installed defibrillators at The Masonic pub, CJ Hole and the two BS3 Community Centres, the Bedminster area of Bristol has much-improved coverage.

Hartcliffe Community Centre, Hareclive Road (Oct 2023)

This defibrillator was installed outside the Hartcliffe Community Centre thanks to a donation from the Walkers and Talkers group. This is the second device the group has provided.

The new defibrillator is a vital addition since the next nearest one was distant. The community centre location covers many nearby homes and apartments.

Many thanks to the Walkers and Talkers, especially Andy Brassington who spearheaded the effort. Thanks also to the local community who were eager to support the project.

 

The easy-to-use defibrillator is now available 24/7 outside the community centre should anyone nearby experience sudden cardiac arrest.

AFC Taxis, Hengrove Parade (July 2023)

Placed in a very prominent location, covering a large catchment of local residents and visitors to Hengrove shops. Two people had collapsed earlier this year in the immediate area, with one requiring a Defibrillator.

Sincere Thanks to the owner of AFC Taxis for agreeing to have the cabinet put outside his Rank and making a donation. Generous donations were also received from the owner of the nearby Best One convenience store and the Pharmacy. The rest of the funds came from the local community following a door-to-door fundraising campaign. The local florists at Don Gays were also of great help, making donations and keeping spirits high during this long campaign!

Special thanks to The Lazy Dog Pub for their collaboration on accommodating our 31st installation!

Thanks to the group's fundraising, this defibrillator was installed outside the entrance to the Southmead Health Centre and will be available 24/7 for anyone at or near the health centre. Well done to the group!

Assisted Installations - 6

Horfield United Reformed Church, Muller Road (2024)

The church took the initiative to fund a defibrillator, which arrived during the challenging times of COVID. They needed assistance to acquire new pads, a bulkhead light, and arrange for an electrician to carry out installation. Congratulations to the church for making strides in ensuring the safety and well-being of the community.

The Bear & Rugged Staff, Southmead (2023)

After Simon provided free CPR training at The Bear & Rugged Staff, the pub owners were inspired to fundraise for their own defibrillator. With some collaboration with GWAAC over the next few months, a life-saving device was installed at the busy pub, right at a crucial crossroads in Southmead. 

Bear and Rugged.jpg

The George Inn, Shirehampton (2022)

After a discussion with Gavin, who had seen one of Defib4Bristol's other defibrillators at the White Lion Pub, we connected him with London Hearts. Inspired by the pub's lifesaving device, Gavin generously funded and installed his own defibrillator outside of The George Inn. 

WhatsApp Image 2023-07-19 at 16.09.45.jpeg

The Lamplighters Pub, Shirehampton (2023)

Simon happily connected Paula, the Landlady of The Lamplighters pub, with GWAAC to install a life-saving Defibrillator at her pub. Following a solo 20-mile charity walk, Paula raised about £6,000. Not only did this fund a Defibrillator, but we understand there is scope to look at another site too. Well done, Paula! 

WhatsApp Image 2023-07-21 at 10.18.00.jpeg

The Westbury-on-Trym Village Hall (2023)

Recognising the need for quick access to a defibrillator, Simon connected the village hall with GWAAC. The hall hosts many gatherings - from weddings to parties - making it an ideal location for a life-saving device. With events happening frequently, having a defibrillator on site could be critical in an emergency. 

IMG-20231105-WA0003.jpg

The Downs Cafe, Clifton (2022)

After the Walking Rugby Group fundraised 50% of the cost of a defibrillator, we connected them with GWAAC to cover the remainder. The Polledri family generously funded the balance needed. This enabled a defibrillator to be installed at an important location on the Downs, where it can provide emergency aid to many park goers, athletes and clubs.
