Defibrillator placed at Queen's Hotel

October 28, 2022

Alan Hardwick was out for a run in April when he fell ill. The fit and healthy 67-year-old was saved by an incredible – and lucky – chain of events which inspired his daughter Lara to raise money for SADS UK to place a defibrillator to help people in the future, which has now been installed at the Queen's Hotel in Southsea.  

Anne Jolly, MBE, Founder of SADS UK said " SADS UK 
are pleased that thanks to Lara, her family and supporters, the Queens Hotel will now have a defibrillator on site. SADS UK is passionate about saving lives and promotes the importance of individuals learning CPR and how to use a defibrillator to help save lives. Since 1998 SADS UK has assisted thousands of schools and many communities to put defibrillators on their premises and delivered training on CPR and how to use a defibrillator."
