Do you know were it is going to be installed?

The plan is to put it close to the junction of Stockport Road and Hollins Lane. More details will be published when everything is confirmed.

We are delighted to advise that we have some amazing news on the Defibrillator Appeal!

Local lady Stephanie Lorusso (nee Shaw, of the Malcolm Shaw & Son Funeral Directors family) has generously donated the balance of £650 that was needed to purchase a defibrillator for Marple Town Centre. Stephanie says that her mother (Sheila Shaw) had a Cardiac Arrest a couple of years back on 2nd January, which she fortunately survived. Sheila then had to have a triple heart bypass last year, which went well, and she is back dancing and living a very active life now at the age of 80 years next September.  When Stephanie saw the Defibrillator Appeal on-line she says she had to contact us and do something as she had been thinking about buying or contributing to a defibrillator in the town centre already and this was the perfect opportunity.

So, this means that the Marple Town Centre Defibrillator project can now go ahead, which is fantastic news!

As far as the Defibrillator Appeal is concerned, it has been decided to continue raising funds for the immediate future to try and cover at least some of the ongoing maintenance costs of £126 PA. Although Marple Civic Society has pledged to pay for this, and of course will do so, if we can raise some extra money towards it then the society will be able to conserve their funds and do other things to benefit Marple with them.

So, if you would still like to be involved with the project and wish to make a contribution towards the running costs of the Marple Town Centre Defibrillator, please get in touch via defibrillator@marple-uk.com

Marple Town Centre Defibrillator Appeal

Marple Bridge Association Chairman Phil Cooke is a man on a mission who, since achieving the installation of life-saving defibrillators in Marple Bridge and Compstall, is now turning his attention to Marple Town Centre. Working with Marple Civic Society, Phil recently secured £1,000 of the £2,000 worth of funding needed for this from Marple Area Committee.

Marple Civic Society has also pledged £200 towards the up-front costs and undertaken to pay the £126 annual running costs for the defibrillator too. Local business GT Landscape and Construction Ltd has already pledged £100 towards the project and The Marple Website has pledged £50 and agreed to help with campaigning, so there is now only £650 needed to make Marple Town Centre a safer place.

Phil says: “The MBA put a public access defibrillator in the phone-box on Lower Fold last year after raising over £2,000 within the community. Earlier this year it was used on a gentleman who had a heart attack on the canal bank off Brabyns Brow, which just goes to show how essential defibrillators are to local communities like ours.”

If you are interested in making a large or small contribution towards this project, either as an individual, a community group or a local business, please get in touch via defibrillator@marple-uk.com.
