Fundraising for life-saving equipment
MONEY is being raised in Pill to help fund a piece of life-saving equipment.
The organiser of fundraising events at the village memorial club, David Clarke, has begun work to collect �1,000 to pay for a defibrillator to be installed at the Lodway facility.
His efforts follow an incident in October when a customer at the club suffered a heart attack and had to be taken to hospital.
A defibrillator is a small piece of equipment which can be used on someone suffering a cardiac arrest to give the heart an electric shock.
There is already one at the village fire station and one at the doctor’s surgery but Mr Clarke wanted to install one at the memorial club, which is open from 8.30am until at least 11pm.

This will be held at the memorial club from 8pm to midnight on February 18, featuring the band Revival. Entry is �6 on the door.
