West End Tennis Club has a Defibrillator

Banbury West End Tennis and Squash Club have purchased an AED (Automatic Electronic Defibrillator), the first in the village, I understand. The unit is designed to save lives in the event of a heart attack. In order to gain access to the unit, anyone assisting someone in cardiac arrest should phone 999, and the location and code to access the unit will be given to them, as well as instructions on caring for the patient. Now, we fully understand that this unit is remote from many areas in the village, and would expect a village of this size to have one, or two more in various spread out locations.

A great evening – thank you especially to Donald for helping us raise just over £500.
