Meet the Team

Do it for Defib is a completely voluntary organisation consisting of four trustees. We are also very lucky to have a number of individuals who offer their time and support on a regular basis. Essentially, we all share the same passion and dedication for teaching adults and children skills which can potentially save lives in an emergency situation.

Our mission is to make sure there are no missing links in the chain of survival through teaching these lifesaving skills and providing vital lifesaving equipment. We hope that the people who give just 2 hours of their time to learning these skills will feel confident to intervene should an emergency situation ever arise.

Charlotte Pickwick
a sudden cardiac arrest survivor

Charlotte Pickwick or “Nine Lives” as she is fondly known as, is a sudden cardiac arrest survivor herself. Charlotte was 41 years of age when she had a cardiac arrest in December 2017 during the early hours of the morning and like in so many cases, she had no prior warning. Since her cardiac arrest she has become an empowered driving force for not only positively influencing the survival rates regionally but also nationally, having been invited to present her story and work with Do it for Defib at national conferences. She is also part of a movement to facilitate change with the goal of improving the aftercare offered to cardiac survivors and their loved ones. Charlotte is a registered Nurse with over 23 years experience. She currently works as a lead Nurse within the NHS.
