A LOCAL family-run convenience store has provided a cash kick-start to a campaign to provide a Staffordshire Moorlands town with more life-saving equipment.
Cheadle town councillor Elizabeth Whitehouse is working with Stone-based AEDdonate to install 10 public-access defibrillators in Cheadle.
Her campaign has attracted a donation of £200 from Premier Stores in Froghall Road.
Cllr Whitehouse said: “As the campaign continues, I am extremely grateful for the donations we have been getting.
“I wanted to say a huge thank you to Premier Stores in Froghall Road for their extremely generous donation of £200 towards the campaign.
“They are the first local business to get involved and I can’t thank them enough for their generosity.
“I am hoping that we will have enough donations by the end of the year for our first defibrillator and then we can carry on fundraising for the rest.
“Once again, thank you Cheadle for your continued support for me and my campaign.
Any questions can be addressed to Coun Whitehouse's Facebook page or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Donations towards the defib campaign can be made online to www.aeddonate.org.uk/projects/cheadle or donation boxes at businesses throughout the town centre.
