A publicly accessible defibrillator has been installed at Howe Trinity Parish Church in Alford.

The equipment itself was generously donated by Alford and District Rotary, but the congregation met the cost of the special temperature controlled external storage cabinet.

They fund-raised through a special collection taken at a recent “Sankey evening”, and a highly successful coffee morning, along with a number of individual donations which were received.

This is the latest defibrillator installed in the Alford area under the banner of the Donside Defibrillator Group, who are also encouraging training in Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in the community.
