Defibrillator donated to Taplow United FC

A football club has installed a piece of potentially life-saving kit.

A defibrillator has been donated to Taplow United FC, meaning players, fans or coaches who suffer a heart attack at the Stanley Jones Memorial Ground, Berry Hill, will now have a better chance of survival.

The machine was donated by Safety First Aid Group, a first aid supplies company, on Friday.

Defibrillators normally cost £1,000, and the club had tried and failed to get one installed through an over-subscribed FA scheme.

Club chairman Paul Holt said: “It’s something we wanted for a while. It’s just a lovely thing to have, but it’s something you don’t want to use.”

The defibrillator will be stored in a cabinet in the club changing rooms.

All coaches and captains know the combination for the door in case of emergency.
