Newlands Corner Riding Club is raising money to buy a potentially life-saving defibrillator which can be used to help in an emergency, should one of our competitors or supporters suffer a heart attack whilst attending an event at Hollister Farm.

We have already received some very generous donations but if you would like to contribute please email the secretary of the club at

What is a Defibrillator and what does it do?

A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest.
This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it's an essential life saving step in the chain of survival. 

Nowadays there are many defibrillators available in public places such as train stations, shopping centres, airport and leisure centres. These defibrillators are often known as public access defibrillators (PAD) as anyone can use them in an emergency. You shouldn’t be afraid of using a defibrillator if someone has had a cardiac arrest.

If you come across someone who has had a cardiac arrest, it’s vital to call 999 and start CPR. Then you should locate the defibrillator and follow the instructions given with the equipment.
