Spalding shoppers will be safer thanks to generous installation of defibrillator by building society

Shoppers will be safe when visiting Spalding town centre thanks to the installation of a new defibrillator.

Nationwide Building Society has given something back to the town by raising money to place a defibrillator at the front of the branch in Hall Place.

This is the latest in a series of the devices which have been placed in the town centre to support shoppers.

South Holland District Council cabinet member Gary Taylor, along with community champion Jan Whitbourn, joined manager Steve Sharp and member representative Karen French at the unveiling.

A spokesman from Nationwide said the firm was pleased to give something back to the town with this device.

He said: “We are keen to support the local community and wanted to deliver something that everybody could potentially benefit from.

“It’s reassuring to know that we now have a working defibrillator that is outside our branch in the hub of a busy market town.

“We are thankful to the generosity our members who have supported us in raising the funds over the past 18 months in the form of a book sale and various fundraising activities.”

Earlier this year a defibrillator was installed onto the Hughes Electrical building in Sheep Market.

While there is another device at the South Holland Centre, which will remain closed until March due to the COVID pandemic.
