Machine a lifesaver but best not to be wanted
Fingers crossed the South Waikato Sports and Events Centre will never have to use its newly donated defibrillator.
The Rotary Club of Tokoroa has just purchased a $3000 machine, which can be used by any sporting or event group that ever finds itself in need.
President Brenda Watkins said they paid half while the remainder was sourced from Rotary International.
She said she approached manager Heather Gaby and was told it was something the centre should have on hand in case of an emergency.
Gaby said she approached the South Waikato District Council’s health and safety committee and was told the decision to grant the swimming pools a defibrillator was still being debated.
She said the centre was stoked Rotary had backed the project.
