Mayor of Wymondham Cllr Kevin Hurn met with Wymondham & District Ex-services Social Club member David Overton to thank him for the fund raising which led to a new defibrillator being sited at the club in Friarscroft Lane, Wymondham. Mr Overton had the idea for a defibrillator last year and decided to set up a fundraising appeal for the project. Within three months the club had raised over £2,600 and the unit was installed at the beginning of the year. Mr Overton thanked club members and local businesses for their generous support of the project and said it was amazing how the club had managed to raise that amount of money in such a short time. Mr Overton said that the unit had already been taken five times by the emergency services since it had been installed. Cllr Hurn said that this was an excellent addition to the ever growing network of defibrillators in Wymondham and that it was a fantastic effort by the club to get the unit installed so quickly.
