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.”
