A new 24 hour defibrillator has been installed and is ready for use in Seaview, thanks to the efforts of Spithead Masonic Lodge and The British Heart Foundation.
Masons from the local area have been raising funds to purchase the potentially life-saving device, which can be used at any time thanks to the donation of an external cabinet from The British Heart Foundation.
The new defib is located on the East wall of the Masonic Hall in Fairy Road.
Councillor Barry Elliott has said:
“On behalf of the residents of Seaview I thank the Spithead Masons in their generosity in the purchase of the defibrillator. We all hope it will never be needed, but if it is, it’s here ready”.
Bob Cooper of the Spithead Masonic Lodge adds:
“The Lodge purchased the Defibrillator just in case it was needed. The British Heart Foundation then generously donated the external cabinet. We have had this fitted and so it is now available at anytime. As Cllr Elliott said, let’s hope it is not needed”.
