Life-Saving Equipment in St Davids City Centre Thanks to JCP Defibrillator Donation
- AuthorArwel Davies
Seven Welsh towns and cities now have lifesaving equipment installed thanks to a campaign by JCP Solicitors, with St Davids being the latest recipient.
Having pledged its support to Welsh Hearts as its Charity of the Year in 208/2019, JCP Solicitors has installed its latest public access defibrillator in St Davids, outside the main entrance of the busy CK Foodstores. Others are already in situ close to JCP offices in Fishguard, Haverfordwest, Caerphilly, Cowbridge, Pontypridd, and Swansea.
These installations have been part of a firm-wide drive to place a defibrillator within each of the nine communities JCP serves.
Arwel Davies, a Director in Lifetime Planning, who is based in the St Davids office, said: “We are very pleased to see this valuable equipment installed in the heart of St Davids town centre, outside one of its main hubs, in support of the very positive work carried out by Welsh Hearts. As a community-based business we are happy to back this great charity and to do what we can to raise awareness of this important issue of heart health. We would encourage others to support Welsh Hearts and we are thankful to the charity for taking the time to provide us with defibrillator and CPR training too, so we are able to use the equipment.”
Welsh Hearts is striving to secure a future where nobody in Wales dies prematurely from heart disease. Cardiovascular disease accounts for a third of all deaths in Wales, where the death rate is higher than in the majority of countries in Western Europe, and Welsh Hearts is the leading heart charity in Wales for placing defibrillators in communities and delivering CPR and defibrillator training.
JCP organised a host of fundraising events for the charity, including raffles and social get-togethers, with prizes donated from local businesses.
