Bloor Homes donates defibrillator to Woolstanwood

A Holmes Chapel based housebuilder has donated life-saving equipment to the Woolstanwood area.

Bloor Homes North West provided a defibrillator for the local area, which will be housed in [please insert details]. Woolstanwood is nearby to the housebuilder’s completed Saxon Gate development in Crewe and its Wistaston Brook site which is currently being built off Church Lane in Wistaston.
The defibrillator was handed over to Cllr Jim Weir from Minshull Vernon and District Parish Council by Stewart Campbell, Site Manager for Bloor Homes. Stewart led the development at Saxon Gate and is now managing the site at Wistaston Brook.
James Clark, Managing Director for Bloor Homes North West, said: “When we learnt that there was the need for an extra defibrillator in Woolstanwood, we knew we wanted to take action to provide local people with one.
“After all, in an event of cardiac arrest, every minute counts. We really hope that the knowledge that there is a local defibrillator will give people some reassurance and make them feel safe and secure.”
Figures show that every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces a victim of cardiac arrest’s survival rate by 7 to 10 per cent and without immediate treatment, 90 to 95 per cent of cardiac arrests prove fatal. So, more local and easily accessible defibrillators can and will save lives.
