DEFIBRILLATORS

DEFIBRILLATORS FOR LLANYMYNECH & PANT

The community of Llanymynech and Pant is currently fund raising to provide three defibrillator machines at sites in the village - The Cross Guns, Pant, Llanymynech Village Hall and Pant Memorial Hall. The machines will cost 1,459 + vat each and they will be fully automatic and housed in cabinets accessible to the public.

Defibrillators are devices that deliver an electric shock to a person who has suffered a cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest occurs when a person's heart stops beating and these machines can save a person's life, There is a machine on the Welsh side of the border at The Dolphin in Llanymynech, but none exist in Pant or near to the King George V playing field at Llanymynech. So this is a very worthwhile community project.

Fund raising has already started, applications are being made for grants, and fund raising events are planned, such as pub quizzes, travel slide show and a fund raising walk of the Heritage Area. Local businesses are being asked for support as well. The total needed will be 4,377, so any donations will be welcome. Donations can be made to Llanymynech and Pant Parish Council who are holding the Fund.
