Raising money for the installation and maintenance of life saving defibrillators in Lyme Regis
Increasing awareness of how to perform CPR and use a defibrillator

Life saving devices in the heart of our community

The objective of Lyme Heartbeat is to increase the availability of 24-hour access defibrillators right across Lyme Regis and surrounding areas as the availability of defibrillators can help to save lives. We aim to increase awareness within the local community of how to perform CPR and use a defibrillator device in order to save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest.

Community fundraising including boat jumbles, raffles and crowdfunding has enabled the purchase and installation of a number of defibrilliator units in and around Lyme Regis.

Free defibrillator awareness & training session

Lyme Heartbeat in association with the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) are providing a free defibrillator awareness and training session designed for anyone living or working within the local community at the Chapel, Alexandra Hotel at 6.30pm on Tuesday 1st October.
