This meant we’ve been able to buy the defibrillator much more quickly than anticipated – in fact, we were able to have it delivered and in pride of place as part of the formal cheque presentation of the funds. Both Mike Raxworthy and Garry Fellows came down to the PLIRB boathouse at the end of September, with the cheque and plenty of smiles.
Making this happen has really boosted the support we’re able to offer in the local community, so our heartfelt thanks go to:
- Mike Raxworthy
- Garry Fellows & staff of the Two Sawyers
- The Harry Randle-Marsh Band
- Soul Train
- 1066 Rockitt Men
- Michael Turner
- ,,, and everyone who supported or contributed to the huge success of this event.
Thanks also to the community at Riddelcourt Caravan Site, for their generous support of this campaign.
At the time of posting, the defibrillator is safely inside the boathouse whilst we wait for the appropriate casing to be able to install this to the outside of the boathouse, ready for community use. This should take place within the next few weeks.
** Thanks also to Rother Responders for their help and advice in making the purchase. If you’d like to know more about Rother Responders, or more about PADs, please check out the Rother Responders website**
