My Heart Emsworth

was launched by Richard Guyver from Envisage Dental Practice after purchasing a Defibrillator for his patients.  The AED is now available for public use during their hours of opening.  This shows  again how Emsworth’s businesses work together to support their community who support them. One of Richard’s aims is to have more defibrillators available in Emsworth – we decided to support this great cause:-

Special Thanks goes to our fantastic customers and friends who purchased raffle tickets and attended our Special Sunday Lunch inspired by traditional ‘unhealthy dishes’. We raised a staggering £1680.50 which enables us to purchase our community defibrillator. Here is a quote from our guest speaker – Local Consultant Cardiologist Dr Richard Jones who also draw the raffle.

“As a Cardiologist it was a great pleasure to support Fat Olives in their delicious culinary fund-raising venture to purchase an automatic defibrillator. This is to be located in the restaurant at the heart of Emsworth – for the use of the whole community. This is such an important cause – for even if it is used once, it has the potential to save a life. It was a great pleasure to deliver my short talk to diners at this cleverly conceived charity lunch. To take them on a journey from the origin of the beating heart, 4 weeks after conception, to the possibility of electrical chaos (fibrillation) which results in a ‘cardiac arrest’ and the end of life. At the press of a button, the automatic defibrillator has the potential to reverse this electrical storm and restore the heart to many more years of happy life”
