A defibrillator has been installed outside the Princess Theatre in Hunstanton, half the cost has been contributed by the borough council.
Hunstanton currently has defibrillators, that can help someone having cardiac arrest, situated on the High Street, Avenue Road, at the lifeboat station and outside Sowerby estate agents. This additional life-saving equipment is now accessible to patrons inside the Princess Theatre, or outside if close to the Green or St Edmunds Terrace.
Brian Hallard, Proprietor of the Princess Theatre, Hunstanton, said: “Obtaining the defibrillator was a joint effort between the borough council and our patrons. I would like to thank our patrons for their generous donations and the borough council for match funding the money the theatre raised to purchase the new defibrillator that has recently been installed outside the theatre.”
Cllr Stuart Dark MBE, Leader of the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, added: “I worked in the emergency services for a number of years and know the value of having a defibrillator easily accessible in popular areas. It is absolutely right to have something that saves lives based here at the Princess Theatre.”
