A woman who is campaigning to put a defibrillator into each primary school in Stamford is appealing for help from local businesses to raise £5,500.

Dannii Vincent from Stamford, wants local businesses from Stamford to help raise the money needed to pay for the life saving equipment that will go into all five of the primary schools in Stamford.

A business could help by paying the full amount for one defibrillator and in return have a plaque put up in their chosen primary school stating that it was donated by them.

Dannii said: “It is a great opportunity for a local company to do something in the community that could help save lives.

“It’s only a small amount of money, it’s so easy to provide that amount of money for life saving equipment. Even the smallest donation helps, everything counts.”

Boxers at the Stamford Amateur Boxing Club are kicking off the funding by holding a amateur boxing show and raffle in aid of the Dosh4Defibs campaign.

The show will be taking place next Saturday at The Deeping Leisure Centre, where the amateur fighters will take to the ring to raise money for the life saving campaign.

Tickets are now on sale for the boxing show and are available from Stamford Boxing Club.

For more information or to donate prizes for the event please contact Catherine on: 01780 754070.

Dannii said: “I would like to say a massive thankyou to everyone who has supported us so far. I would like people to start thinking about charities that are closer to home.”
