A LAKESIDE activity centre now has a life-saving piece of equipment.
The Rudyard Lake Trust has raised the funds for the purchase of an automatic defibrillator which is now in place at the Activity Centre, by the Dam Head of Rudyard Lake. The purchase was made possible thanks to support from the Your Moorlands Regeneration Fund and The Rudyard League of Friends.
A total of 12 volunteers at the lake also attended a The West Midlands Ambulance Service course to be trained to use the equipment. There was a special hand-over event which saw representatives of the donating organisations attend.
George Aberley, Chair of Your Moorlands Tenant Scrutiny Panel and David Copeland, Chairman of The League of Friends formally handed over the defibrillator to Ray Perry from The Rudyard Lake Trust who has now placed the automatic defibrillator in to a custom built wall mounted cupboard constructed by a local craftsman and volunteer John Kent.
