More than £2,000 was raised in the Darnick defibrillator appeal, which was a fantastic response from villagers.
The life-saving equipment has now been purchased and installed on the south facing wall of the Smith Memorial Hall.
The funds were also used to pay for two evening training events, delivered by Rhona Morrison of Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team, with 26 residents receiving excellent training in:
- Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- The recovery position
- Use of a defibrillator (same model as the one to be installed)
It is hoped a further training course will be organised later in the year for those who expressed an interest but couldn’t make the dates.
