Jonathan Djanogly MP joins campaign to save lives

20th October 2016

Every single year in the UK, 30,000 people suffer a sudden cardiac arrest. Sadly, just less than 1-in-10 survive. It’s time to take action.

As part of European Restart a Heart Day Jonathan Djanogly MP visited The Oliver King Foundation at their launch event in Westminster to show support.

The Oliver King Foundation setup following the tragic death of 12-year-old Oliver King from a sudden cardiac arrest, which kills 12 young people every single week. Oliver was winning a swimming race at school.

Early access to a defibrillator is vital. For every minute that passes, chances of survival drop by 10 per cent.

Signing up to become a Defibrillator Champion for Huntingdonshire Jonathan Djanogly said:

“I am proud to become a lifesaving Defibrillator Champion for Huntingdonshire. It is vital that we take action to prevent any loss of life where one can be saved. It was interesting to hear from the Foundation about how many lives have been saved. I will be delighted to work as a Defibrillator Champion, saving lives is a legacy that we can all be proud of.”

Jake Morrison, Chief Executive of The Oliver King Foundation said:

“We are delighted that Jonathan Djanogly MP has signed up as a Defibrillator Champion. It is important that we spread awareness of the vital need for this equipment in our communities. Our Members of Parliament have a great platform and connection in their constituencies to spread this message. We look forward to working with Jonathan and saving lives for years to come.”
