Defibrillator Fundraiser for St Shanaghan House & ArdaraTeague McFadden, Residential Services Manager of the Ardara Sheltered Housing Association is running a Talent Showcase as fundraiser to purchase a Defibrillator for Ardara. This will be in the Nesbitt Arms Hotel on Friday 17th November from 8:00pm. The Nesbitt Arms have very kindly donated their function suite for the night. This will include a rich variety of local established and up and coming artists and should be a really entertaining night for a great cause. Posters will be distributed shortly. They hope that you might be able to support us through the donation of a prize for a raffle/auction, a direct donation to the fund and of course purchasing tickets for what we hope will be a fabulous night. Given the vulnerability of our residents, it is our intention to site the Defibrillator at the rear of St. Shanaghan House, but in a way that the whole of Ardara might have access through trained individuals to an essential piece of life saving equipment. They are also looking at the establishment of a Cardiac First Responder network of trained volunteers within Ardara to ensure that we are really well prepared to respond to any cardiac difficulty. They have had an offer of free training already which is fantastic.
