21 August 2023 – Public Hearts reaches The Big 60
Public hearts Defibrillator Campaign is delighted to announce the installation of its 60TH defibrillator.
It is registered on The Circuit and is welcome addition to increase local public access defibrillator coverage. Jules Rains, Tom Phil and the No.3 Restaurants team at The Merryfellow Inn have been part of Public Hearts Defib Family for a long time and were a great support to us and Team Tidal during Covid. Chef Patron Tom Rains and Masterchef/ Rugby legend Philip Vickery MBE welcomed the new addition, a brand new ZOLL Medical Corporation AEDPLUS defibrillator.
As are the pads with 4 year renewals
This is a landmark moment for our small, yet mighty not for profit community campaign. We set out to give Cheltenham, our Festival Town the appropriate defib coverage with no commercial incentive or barriers. Now we are the Defib Capital of the SouthWest.From the 6 defibs we facilitated pre Covid, to 35 last year and 19 so far this year, it can be done with the support, encouragement and kindness of others. Thank you all of our Defib Family, including Circle2Success for supporting us and the campaign so generously.
