Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS - By DEB­O­RAH COLE­MAN

THE ARK­LOW Com­mu­nity First Re­spon­ders were de­lighted to re­ceive sup­port from two gen­er­ous donor re­cently fol­low­ing fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives.

Group rep­re­sen­ta­tives met with An­thony and Ar­lette Doyle from Fern­hill to ac­cept the pro­ceeds of their Hal­lowe’en House of Hor­rors fundraiser.

A to­tal of €1104.50 was raised on this oc­ca­sion.

A sec­ond do­na­tion of €1,295 was re­ceived from Beech Road Com­mu­nity Alert Group which held an af­ter­noon tea event at the AGB GAA com­plex.

John Sum­mers of Ark­low Com­mu­nity First Re­spon­ders said that the group was very grate­ful for the sup­port.

‘We were de­lighted and ex­tremely grate­ful to re­ceive these gen­er­ous do­na­tions. We would like to ex­press our sin­cere thanks to both par­ties. These do­na­tions will help us greatly in our aim in plac­ing Pub­lic Ac­cess De­fib­ril­la­tors around our town and should a car­diac emergency hap­pen the pa­tient would have the best pos­si­ble chance of a pos­i­tive out­come. We are at cur­rently in the process of se­cur­ing a suit­able lo­ca­tion for Ark­low’s 8th Pub­lic Ac­cess De­fib­ril­la­tor and we hope to launch it in the com­ing weeks,’ he said.
