TATTENHALL Community First Responder Group (TCFRG) has raised money for life-saving equipment to make the district a safer place for cardiac arrest victims.

A successful charity golf day and funding from Cheshire West and Chester Council has enabled the team to purchase two defibrillators to be sited in Tattenhall and Burwardsley respectively.

A defibrillator is a machine that can restart the heart in some cases of cardiac arrest by giving an electric shock through the chest wall.

Morton’s Country Stores on the High Street in Tattenhall is the chosen location for the first defibrillator.

The team will be unveiling it on Saturday (October 30).

Staff at the shop are now potential lifesavers after getting training from TCFRG in how to operate the defibrillator and how to carry out CPR.

TCFRG scheme co-ordinator, Peter Radley said: “The community has been so kind to us in supporting all our fundraising activities so we wanted to give something back, which is why we decided to raise money for two more defibrillators for the area that we cover.”
