27 January 2016: Leyland church places community defibrillator

St Marys Church

St Mary’s Church in Leyland purchased an AED and cabinet to provide a 24 hour Community Public Access Defibrillator for the community of Leyland.

A big thank you to one of the local businesses for contributing towards the cost of the AED.

Cheryl Pickstock, the Lancashire County Coordinator of the Chain of Survival team delivered defibrillator awareness training for staff at the church to enable them to use the life-saving equipment should they ever have to treat someone having a cardiac arrest.
