Before our match with Yaxley on Saturday, there was a hand over of a defibrillator from the Bromsgrove Sporting Supporters Society to the club.
BSSS member Paul Cheston was on hand to give the defibrillator to chairman Mike Burke.
Although the club already has a defibrillator that stays at the ground, it was felt that, because there is such a good away following, the club should have our own ‘away’ defibrillator, especially as it cannot be relied upon all the teams we visit having one.
The money to purchase it was raised by the BSSS, with thanks to Anne Clissett and Alan Horton for arranging a quiz night.
A special thanks also goes to a donor, who wished to remain anonymous, who gave a whopping £400.
The machine will travel with the team to away matches, in the care of kitman Leigh, where it will, of course, be available for anyone who may need it.
Mike Burke commented: “Our thanks go to the BSSS and the donor and everyone who supported the fund raising for the ‘away defibrillator’.
“The Society saw that there was a need for this and raised over the £1000 needed, in a such a short time.
“It will give us all peace of mind, but hopefully we will never have need to use it.”
