Thanks to twenty-seven donations from our kind supporters, the target for the Parish defibrillator was exceeded within just a few days - with over £2600 raised. We were lucky enough to secure a generous grant from the supplier, London Hearts, and therefore the machine cost nearly £400 less than anticipated - £1211. We need to reserve £500 for maintenance and replacement consumables, but that leaves enough money to arrange for CPR/First Aid training for parishioners if we wish, and a healthy balance to be donated to the Parish Community Fund.
The machine has been ordered and will be with us shortly.
Thanks you all again for your help and generous support.
Ian & Karen
