A number of people at St Francis Church are really keen to see a defibrillator located at Nostell Place shopping area.
Defibrillator's are reasonably straightforward to use and are highly effective in providing instant life saving help to someone who is having a cadiac arrest. Training is provided for using a defibrilator but it is possible for a members of the public can use them with no training

We are seeking to raise funds to buy a and house a defibrillator and are in contact with a charity who will match fund all that we raise. Approximate costs are £950 for the defibrilator, £150 for the initial training and £300 to house it.
If you are interested in helping out please get in touch with the church office.
