  » What is the Lord Wedgwood Charity?

After suffering a major heart attack while playing golf in Birmingham, Alabama, in 2001, Lord Piers Wedgwood, international ambassador for Wedgwood China and Waterford Crystal, and member of the British House of Lords, was inspired to give back to the community. Following his recovery, Lord Wedgwood formed the Lord Wedgwood Charity with Birmingham-based business leaders to help place Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) in high schools and community gathering places


"As a result of...decisive action,..
I am alive today."..

"At the time of my collapse..
I was fortunate that our gymnasium..
was only thirty seconds from the one..
AED that Hoover High School had."..

-Ashley Shepherd..
