Liner Lookout Café situated near Smeaton's Tower is appealing to the Plymouth Waterfront Partnership businesses to raise funds for a new life saving heart defibrillator for the safety of the general public.
The public access equipment will be affixed to the café and will enable anyone to use it in an emergency.
A defibrillator is a machine which restarts the heart in the event of a cardiac arrest. If used correctly, can save lives, especially in busy areas where emergency service response times can be longer.
The Liner Lookout Café's owners Ann and David Morrish who recently took possession of the life saving automatic external defibrillator (AED) from the charity, Heartswell South West, said "With events happening all year round on Plymouth Hoe, it makes sense for a defibrillator to be available should the unthinkable happen".
Heartswell Trustee David Wells said: “We are very pleased to be able to donate this piece of equipment to The Liner Lookout Café. Hopefully it will never be needed but having a defibrillator located in a location as busy as the Hoe is essential and can be the saving grace in an emergency situation”.
For more information about the public access defibrillator or how you can help to raise funds please contact Dave Morrish on 07855949295 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
To be able to continue providing this piece of lifesaving equipment, HeartSWell do rely heavily on fundraising activities and donations from the public.
