The Restart a Heart Project will deliver CPR & Defib workshops and training that will benefit the people of Fairwater and its surrounding areas.

The Restart a Heart Project has been put together by The Ajuda Foundation and its volunteers. The project is mainly funded by money raised from The David Hill Memorial fund. The fund was set up by David’s Family after Dave, otherwise known to many as “Hilly” tragically lost his life after a sudden cardiac arrest, on the 18th of July 2022.

Hilly was born and raised in Grangetown, Cardiff and later moved to Fairwater where he lived with his wife Deb’s. Here is Hilly pictured below.

A loving father to his sons Rhys and Nathan and stepchildren Stacy, Amy, Cameron, Jack & Connor. Dave was also a loving grandad to 5 grandchildren, Jacob, Madison, Kaitlyn, Scarlett & Reuben.

He spent most of his working life as a lifeguard training in CPR & Defib, so he was equipped to save lives of many others. Hilly was a much-loved friend of all those who met him, and a valued member of the local community. He always went out of his way to help others, and now we want to use his legacy to do exactly the same.

The Restart a Heart Project will train children & adults in CPR and how to use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). Here is Dawn teaching children life saving skills like CPR and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator in a school in Fairwater showing we are committed to the cause.

How the money will be spent

The aim of this project is to create an Army of “Hilly’s Heroes” and educate people to save lives by learning vital CPR skills, along with the safe use of an AED. This legacy project will not only benefit the people of Fairwater but, with more funds we can also help raise awareness of early CPR and the use of an AED throughout Cardiff and its surrounding areas, we will also aim to branch out to communities throughout the Welsh Valleys too.
