Local MP Justin Madders, has signed up to become a Defibrillator Champion for Ellesmere Port and Neston.

As part of European Restart a Heart Day Justin visited The Oliver King Foundation - setup following the tragic death of 12-year-old Oliver King from a sudden cardiac arrest - at their launch event in Westminster.

Every year in the UK, 30,000 people suffer a sudden cardiac arrest; sadly, less than 1-in-10 survive. Early access to a defibrillator is vital as for every minute that passes, chances of survival drop by 10%.

Justin said:

“I am proud to become a lifesaving Defibrillator Champion for Ellesmere Port and Neston. It is vital that we take action to prevent any loss of life where one can be saved. I will be working within the community to make sure we have enough lifesaving defibrillators in our area.”
