MP To Raise Money For Withernsea Defibrillators

November 26, 2014
By

Member of Parliament for Beverley and Holderness, Graham Stuart will be in Withernsea this Saturday from 10.30am – noon for his regular street surgery outside Aldi Supermarket. At the same time he will be holding a bucket collection to raise money to buy two new Defibrillators for the town. Graham said, “Since my bike ride to raise awareness of Community Public Access Defibrillators, I’ve been approached by a number of different organisations to say they would like to host a Defibrillator. I also wrote to Parish and Town Councils to encourage them to get a machine too. “Withernsea Town Council and Withernsea Primary School have both said they would like to host a Defibrillator. If somebody suffers a cardiac arrest then a defibrillator needs to be with them within 4 minutes to have the best chance of survival, so there is certainly scope for both machines in the town. “I hold regular street surgeries in Withernsea where residents can come along and raise any issues they might have. I saw this as an opportunity to help both the School and the Town Council to raise the money they need for a Defibrillator. “I’ll be outside Aldi from 10.30am – noon…
