A life-saving defibrillator has been installed at Chapel-en-le-Frith Golf Club, which has been jointly funded by the Captain’s Charity and the British Heart Foundation.
Many of the staff and members have now received emergency first aid and defibrillator training, kindly provided by East Midlands Ambulance Service, and will be able to use this valuable piece of equipment with confidence if needed.
The captains, Marcus Wood and Pam Wilson, also donated £500 to the WhaleyBridge/Chapel-en-le-Frith First Responders Group, money which has been raised from their Captain’s Charity this year.
The First Responders do a brilliant job in the local community supporting the emergency services.
Jane Butler, speaking on behalf of Whaley/Chapel Community First Responders, said: “We are so grateful to Chapel-en-le-Frith Golf Club for this generous donation, which will enable us to buy equipment for our newest recruits, who commence their training in the new year.
“We’d also like to thank those club members who have taken the time to train in the use of the defibrillator and basic life support skills. We know from experience that this can saves lives.”
