A Stone based charity is looking for new volunteers.

AEDdonate, based in the High Street, supports clubs, groups and organisations with fundraising to buy Automated External Defibrillators (AED) to help prevent sudden death through cardiac arrest.

Chief executive Jamie Richards said: “At the moment we have four volunteers, but we urgently need around 10 more so that we can carry out all the community projects we currently have and be able to begin new ones.

“Our recruitment evening takes place at our headquarters on Stone High Street from 6-9pm on June 28th, and we’re appealing for people of all ages and skills to come along and find out more about us.

“Whatever their skills, whether it’s IT, photography, administration, organising events or giving talks, we can find a role to match their talents.”

The charity have already been boosted by the arrival of new uniforms - donated by local business Planned Office Interiors

Neil Rowley, office furniture manager at Planned Office Interiors, said: “Since we helped the AEDdonate team set up their community room earlier this year, we’ve continued to work in partnership to support them as our local community charity.

“When Jamie at AEDdonate mentioned they wanted to recruit volunteers and needed uniforms for them and their staff, we were happy to step in and help and I think they look really smart and professional.

“I hope their recruitment drive for volunteers is successful, as the work they do is essential and saves lives, and the more volunteers they have the more people they can help across the county and beyond.”
