Many thanks to everyone who has helped with the Village Defibrillator fund. In just over 2 months over £2,000 has been raised and the Sports Club will be looking to make the purchase over the summer.
Special thanks to both the Rotary Club of Kenilworth and the Lions Club of Kenilworth who contributed £400 and £250 respectively. Other fundraisers included a charity football match and a Ladies Social Evening at the Club which combined raised £1,000. Well done and thank you to all.
Dr Dan Ford, who is one of the Sports Club members, is currently dealing with the British Heart Foundation and the plan is to get the lifesaving equipment by September which was always the intention of the project when it was initiated.
The defibrillator will need to be housed on an external brick wall with power connections and this is something that the Sports Club does not possess hence we are in discussions with the Village Hall to see if we can locate the defibrillator there.
When the equipment is purchased we will also need to pay for ongoing maintenance costs and we hope that we will have sufficient funds for this but we are also in discussion with the Parish Council on this issue.
Once again many thanks to everyone who helped with this project.
