Sopha Easter Raffle for defibrillator

This Easter we are hosting an exciting Easter Raffle to raise funds for a life-saving defibrillator, not only for our store but also for our local community in Highbridge. With your help, we can make a difference and potentially save lives!

The Importance of a Defibrillator

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is an unexpected and potentially fatal event that affects around 30,000 people each year. Quick access to a defibrillator is crucial, as every minute counts when it comes to increasing the chances of survival. By installing a defibrillator close to the town centre, we can offer the Highbridge community a fighting chance in the face of an SCA.

There is currently a defibrillator at Southwell House however there are currently none available within the town centre, near our store.

Our Fundraising Goal

The total cost to install a defibrillator and train people on its proper use exceeds £1,400. Thanks to your generous support, we have already raised £400, and we’re confident that our Easter Raffle will get us even closer to our goal.

A Personal Connection

Sopha founder Emily shared her thoughts on the importance of the defibrillator initiative: “Last year, one of our team members tragically lost a close family member, aged 35, to cardiac arrest, leaving behind two young children. With a defibrillator in our shop, we hope to give the community of Highbridge a fighting chance of surviving an SCA. We are both grateful and humbled by the support of our community and local businesses who have generously donated prizes for the raffle. Our thanks also goes to Kevin and our team in the shop who are making this raffle possible.”
