We’re proud to announce that we have now successfully installed 100 defibrillators across our estate. This has been a big focus of ours this year, and we don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
This wouldn’t have been achieved without the help of our operators and pub locals and we’re proud to see the huge effort that has been put into this initiative. Each pub was challenged to raise £1,500 within its community to fund the defibrillators and operators were incredibly creative, with events such as raffle nights, sponsored head shaves and auctions.
The defibrillators are a medical device which sends an electric pulse or shock to the heart to restore a normal heartbeat when an individual is in cardiac arrest. We have positioned these outside the pubs for medical emergencies, which the public can access, and are designed to provide emergency support for individual communities. It’s great to hear that the defibrillators installed have already aided in three life-changing results and we hope they will continue to be a huge support to the local communities.
