Shooting Star

Best of WF3 Awards 2020

Lifetime Achievement Award

This is a special award for an individual or organisation that has made a significant contribution to the community or afar over an extended period of time.


Cody Hartley

Cody has been fundraising and purchasing defibrillators to put into schools and public places since the age of 11. 


With each defibrillator that she places, she organises training to be provided by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service for up to 12 people.


Cody raises funds by doing organised events, sponsored activities, car boot sales and most recently running a selling page. 


In 7 years, Cody has placed 8 defibrillators and is currently in the process of completing the process for placing another two. 


As well as raising funds to buy these lifesaving pieces of kit she also works to raise awareness by hosting talks in local community venues such as church halls and clubs. She has even taken her campaign to 10 Downing Street. 


Cody has undoubtedly helped save many lives through the defibrillators that she has provided and we think that Cody is a truly inspirational person. Her willingness to help save lives of a complete stranger, raise awareness and push for changes in the law is exemplary and she thoroughly deserves this very special award.
