Defibrillator Appeal

Home >> Content >> Defibrillator Appeal

The Town Council is appealing to local businesses to support a Community Defibrillator in Potter Street.

The Community Defibrillator, which will provide a potentially life-saving community facility, will be housed in the red telephone box in Potter Street at the top of Devoils Lane.  This will be refurbished and re-purposed by the Town Council and BT have confirmed that it is available.  The refurbished box will also provide a bright and colourful focal point in the centre of Town.  

The Council is seeking one or more sponsors for the defibrillator itself which costs £2,500 including fitting.  The Council is also seeking one or more sponsors to cover the annual maintenance costs of £500 per year approximately.  The Council will acknowledge any sponsorship received on its website and any business or individual donating £200 or more will be listed on a plaque to be fitted in the box, for the lifetime of the machine purchased.

 

If you or your business wish to contribute please contact the Council on 01279 715000.
