A defibrillator has been purchased, installed and, unveiled at Duthie Park after a fund raising effort by Friends of Duthie Park and a fitness group who did a 12 hour relay around the park on space hoppers. The defibrillator will be accessed by callers to the emergency services via a pin code.
As an extra to Brians Good News for this week, Rob and Brian attended today’s coffee morning at St Columbas Church of Scotland in aid of Help For Heroes. The coffee morning was successful. Help For Heroes did not make any one available to speak or collect the £302 raised. Well done to hard working team who organises and runs these coffee mornings on the last Friday of each month and raises significant funds in such a short time.
