The Sargood Foundation has purchased a portable defibrillator for the use of the local community which is housed for public access at Sargood and is easily accessible to local residents.

At the Sargood open day join a short, but intensive course on how to use our new community defibrillator and deliver CPR. With the kind support of Collaroy Surf Life Saving Club you and your family will learn how to get CPR friendly, use Sargood’s portable defibrillator and how to keep someone who suffers a cardiac arrest alive!

The Sargood Foundation

For those of you who are new to the area or are not familiar with the building at the end of Beach Road, Sargood on Collaroy is a world first, state-of-the-art resort purpose built for people living with spinal cord injury, which was initiated, developed and partly funded by the Collaroy Community.

The Sargood Foundation is a DGR registered Charity which represents this community and together we own 25% of Sargood on Collaroy.

We hope you will join us on the afternoon of Sunday 27th October at either 2:00pm or 4:00pm to see behind the scenes of this amazing life changing place!

At Sargood, our objective is to promote genuine independence and integration in the lives of our guests, who all live with life changing spinal cord injury.

Guests are able to participate in activities such as surfing, kayaking, rock climbing, sailing, diving, golf, tennis, fishing, water skiing and cycling alongside more therapeutic activities including yoga, cooking, ceramics, gardening or even a trip to our local Farmers Markets.

These activities, many requiring specially adaptive equipment, help to build confidence, optimism and a realization of what is possible for those living with SCI.

CPR Friendly Street Party - Manly

How a simple street get together could save our families lives.

Kindly hosted by Noel & Pauline Carroll this event was enthusiastically attended by over 50 local community members with training supported by Tony Tier (Manly Surf Club) and Guy Leech (Heart180). 70% of sudden cardiac arrests happen at home with family members, so this local community now has access to their own defibrillator to help save the lives of loved ones.

CPR friendly Street Party

After the success of our first CPR friendly BBQ, we organised a similar CPR Friendly Street Party giving our local community the opportunity to enhance their CPR skills in a fun environment while also raising funds for their very own street Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

A CPR Friendly Street Party is a great way to bring the street and locals together. It revitalises the community spirit in a fun but socially concise way to help create a heart smart street, with the added option of raising funds for a street defibrillator. Typically hosted at a resident’s home, driveway, local public park, community centre or surf club these casual events ideally run for 90 minutes, which includes a 30-60 minute CPR information session. An example might be 4:30pm–6pm on a Sunday afternoon with every household invited to bring a plate and drinks.

Our first CPR friendly Street Party was run in February 2019, with 50 local residents and the kind support of a trainer from Newport Surf Club. Funds for a defibrillator were raised with the AED placed centrally within 3 minutes of everyone in the street. This life-saving emergency device is stored in a weatherproof alarmed storage cabinet for security.

CPR friendly BBQ

Having a near death experience was a real wake up call for Ian and Donald who realised how vital up-to-date CPR training now was in saving lives. In Nov 2018 they got together (8 weeks after Ian’s sudden cardiac arrest) to host their first CPR Friendly BBQ providing training for 30 family members and friends.

CPR Friendly BBQs are ideal for family and friends of all ages to get their loved ones up to speed and a little more CPR friendly. As 80% of sudden cardiac arrests happen at home, it is comforting to know your loved ones are more confident in their CPR skills. A short CPR information session of 30-60 mins is ideally followed by drinks and a fun social BBQ. As mentioned, our inaugural CPR friendly BBQ was hosted in November 2018 with 30 family and friends.
