Disability Support Worker wins life saving equipment

Group of people in front of Bendigo Bank building When Zach asked if he could enter a competition to win a defibrillator, he was putting our participants and staff at the heart of everything.

Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in Australia. Access to a defibrillator can be the difference between life and death.

Zach learned that Bendigo Bank at Oak Flats and Shellharbour were providing defibrillators as part of their 21st birthday celebrations with Wave FM. He had a spark of inspiration, and entered the competition to get one of the life-saving machines for the Waratah Day Program and Shoalhaven Sport and Rec.

Zach’s entry was successful, and the Shoalhaven team now have their very own Automated External Defibrillator (AED), as part of the current Heart of the Nation initiative. Zach and other team members were accompanied by a group of participants from the Shoalhaven Day Program when they went for an enjoyable day out to collect the AED from Bendigo Bank in Oak Flats.
