In May/June 2023, the PCC decided to buy and install a defibrillator, for use by the church and the local community, as it would be housed outside the church. Proceeds from Marcia’s Strawberry Tea kick started the fund and then further money was raised from community grants, special events and personal donations. Towards the end of the year sufficient money had been raised, the machine was purchased and has now been installed on the wall outside the Hall door. (NOTE – no money came from church funds.)
