Mystery donation sees new defibrillator at All Saints Church Hall in Milford
A NEW lifesaving defibrillator has been installed at All Saints Church Hall in Milford, thanks to a secret donation.
The device has been fitted to an external wall on the Greenbank Close building, so it is accessible to the public at all times.
It was funded by an anonymous donor and installed free of charge by Martin Blakey of Blakey Electrical.
The Rev. Tasha Anderson said: “We wish to thank the donors who have asked to remain anonymous. We are very grateful.”
Mr Blakey also fitted a new dusk-to-dawn light to help illuminate the equipment during the hours of darkness.
Church office manager Derek Batterbee added: “The new defibrillator is very user friendly – the device speaks instructions giving the user step by step guidance.
“The idea is that anyone would be able to use it in an emergency.
“We obviously hope it will never be needed but it’s a great reassurance – anyone who needs access to it will need to call 999 to be given the code to unlock it.”
