Weston village hall has raised £2000 in order to purchase a defibrillator, which will be used solely in the village.

The defibrillator will be placed in a security box outside the village hall in Weston, and will be avaiable to be used on anyone who suffers a cardiac arrest in the village.

Helpers must call 999 in order to gain access to a security code in order to use the machine, which will allow 24 hour emergency access in Weston.

Linda Cleary, chair at Weston village hall, said: “We held two quizzes and recieved various donations, including one from Weston Consolidated Charities and raised the money in the space of eight months.

“LIVES are going to give us a talk on how easy it will be to use the machine, and we hope to offer free life daving training later in the year.”

The defibrillator will be launched on Monday at 6:30pm, alongside a presentation from LIVES (Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service) on the benefits of using the machine.
