Push to save lives in Monifieth

Alan Kennedy and Thomas Milligan of Ewarts Butchers, Monifieth, are presented with a defibrillator by Lynn Lawrence, St John Scotland volunteerA butcher’s shop in Monifieth, Angus, has become one of several venues in the town to install Public Access Defibrillators in a push to save lives.

Ewarts butchers, on the High Street, has installed a defibrillator outside the shop, meaning it is available to be used 24/7 in an emergency.

St John Scotland helped provide the defibrillator through our support for the Butchers at the Heart of the Community campaign, which hopes to see butchers across Scotland provide a Public Access Defibrillator for the benefit of their local community.

Alan Kennedy, proprietor of Ewarts butchers, said: “We’re delighted to be able to install this defibrillator thanks to the generosity of our customers. We had seen that other butchers had installed defibrillators in their towns and it felt like a good thing to do, and a great way for us to give something back to the people of Monifieth who have supported us for many years.”

Recent work by groups across Monifieth has seen several more defibrillators being installed in the town, including at the library, at Alan Masterton solicitors, Monifieth Medical Practice, CD Copland Motors and the Milton Inn pub.

It is hoped these will be joined in the near future by further defibrillators, giving more people in the town access to life-saving equipment.

Local St John Scotland volunteers are planning a series of CPR and defibrillator awareness events in the coming months to help people in Monifieth learn how they can save a life.
