BHA helps to fund new defibrillator in Duns

Published on 4th December 2018

Berwickshire Housing Association’s Tenant Volunteers are one of several groups helping to finance the provision of a defibrillator to be sited at Duns Rugby Club.

At BHA’s head office last week DRFC medic Stevie Wood (left) accepted a cheque for £500 from Tenant Volunteer Rodney Short.

Located on the gable end of the DRFC clubrooms, the Public Access Defibrillator and trained personnel will provide a readily available emergency response to an out of hospital cardiac arrest within an area of Duns that has the potential for having large numbers of staff, players, and spectators alike all within a sports hub and school environment.

The defibrillator will serve not only the rugby club but also the swimming pool, football club, squash and racket club and the primary and high schools.
