The Jason Roberts Foundation are the latest welcome recipients of the JE3 Defibrillator Donation Scheme. The Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation selected JRF as ‘the perfect recipient for a life-saving defibrillator’ due to JRF’s work to supports thousands of people, young and old from their permanent community hub at Bridgestone Arena in London.
The Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation which was founded in 2019 and propelled by the life and legacy of Justin Edinburgh, pursues one goal: Increased survival following cardiac arrest. The JE3 Foundation campaigns for legislative change on the installation of Automated External Defibrillators within health and sports facilities, while raising awareness of cardiac arrest and delivering CPR training.
The JRF is extremely grateful to receive this life-saving equipment. In the UK, more than 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur each year. Survival rates are just 1 in 10. Early intervention through CPR and defibrillators can double the chances of survival.
Charlie Edinburgh, CEO of the JE3 Foundation and trustee, Jobi McAnuff presented CEO of the JRF, Otis Roberts with the defibrillator. Otis welcomed the donation saying, ‘The Jason Roberts Foundation is a community hub for learning, building new connections, developing life skills, and creating opportunity. We’re also a safe space for our participants. Today’s donation from the JE3 Foundation takes us one step further in safeguarding the many members of our community who walk through our doors.’
