We are raising money for a life-saving defibrillator to go in the old phonebox next to the hall – see here
The parish has adopted the two old phone boxes, and these have been repainted (thanks to the efforts of John S and Zak). .
For the phone box in Mount, next to the Jubilee Hall, the Parish Meeting has agreed to install a defibrillator, enabling anyone having a heart attack to get faster treatment; dial 999 and they’ll tell you where the nearest one is; and the equipment is self-explanatory, it assesses the patient; and talks to the helper; and can save lives. Some of you may have come to the parish meeting of 25 Sept 2015, where a representative from Fleet (the Front Line Emergency Equipment Trust) provided advice and answered questions; a good guide to how these things work is available from this PDF from the British Heart Foundation.
And so now we need to raise £3,100 for the defibrillator. Warleggan Young Farmers have made this cause one of the two they are supporting this year; and postie-Graham’s daughter-in-law Sarah, from Bodmin, is going to raise money for us at this year’s London Marathon.
