Three new defibrillators will be installed in Pinchbeck thanks to bakers and councillors.

Cake makers Julie Collins and Lisa Atkinson have joined forces with parish and district councillors to ensure the village has the life saving devices.

The first defibrillator has been installed at the Baptist Church with other units planned for the Church Hall on Rose Lane, and West Pinchbeck.

Julie and Lisa regularly hold cake sales and were raising money for the defibrillator. This was boosted by a donations from the parish council and the district ward budgets of councillors James Avery, Liz Sneath and Sally Slade.

Julie also managed to persuade LT Electrical Services to install the units free of charge. “This was a fantastic offer from LT Electrical Services, and we would like to thank them very much for their help” Julie commented.

Coun Avery said: “This now gives us four publicly available defibrillator units in Pinchbeck, and we will have two in West Pinchbeck.

“We sincerely hope there is never a need to use these devices, but they are there to help save lives should such an emergency arise.

“I would like to thank Julie and Lisa for their cake making and fund raising skills, and for their continuing efforts in fundraising – currently for the people of Ukraine, and to install bench seating within Pinchbeck.”
