Second Defibrillator arranged and installed by Marlborough Youth Football Club at the Bowls Club

(l to r) Phil Davenport (Bowls Club),  Chris Woodward (Tesco Community Champion) and Keith Marshall MYFC u18 and Over 50s Manager(l to r) Phil Davenport (Bowls Club), Chris Woodward (Tesco Community Champion) and Keith Marshall MYFC u18 and Over 50s ManagerMarlborough Youth Football Club have managed to arrange the installation of a second public access defibrillator, this time at the Marlborough Bowls Club with help from Tesco, courtesy of their 'Blue Token' scheme and the Bowls Club.

 

The bowls club raised £300 towards the designated box, through a variety of fundraising events, and the bright new box is now installed in its rightful place on the Bowls Clubhouse wall.

 

Defibrillator unit on the Bowls Club wallDefibrillator unit on the Bowls Club wallThis is a public access defibrillator and in an emergency in that area the Ambulance Service would direct a member of the public regarding how to use this.

 

The scheme only provides funding for the defib, and not the box in which it resides.

As this defib's location was to be at the Salisbury Road Rec, Keith Marshall who also runs the Over 50s walking football in Marlborough, approached the bowls club to see if they would be happy to part fund the new box, with the balance being picked up by MYFC. A number of the walking footballers are members at the bowl club as well.

 

Defibrillator training at the recent awareness coffee morning at the Bowls ClubDefibrillator training at the recent awareness coffee morning at the Bowls ClubTo promote the use of the defibrillator an awareness coffee morning was held at the Bowls Club attended by twenty five members which, as well as giving basic tuition helped raise further funds for the project.

 

Both Phil Davenport (Bowls Club) and Keith Marshall (MYFC) are happy to support and encourage groups within Marlborough to become Defibrillator aware and how to perform basic CPR.  For further information contact Keith via the Marlborough Youth FC website www.myfc.me.uk or drop into the bowls club and ask for Phil Davenport.
