MJD donates life-saving community defibrillator

Stewarton Woodlands Action Trust recently received life-saving equipment donated by MJD Scaffolding Ltd.  

L - R – Frank Johnstone, Councillor Ellen Freel, Councillor John McGhee, Urmilla Ratnasabapthy, Martin Boyle, Mike Stepney, Heather Callaghan

Martin Boyle, a member of the community has kindly agreed to host the defibrillator and provide the electricity from his own home.

This unique initiative, devised by the Council’s Health and Safety Service and Procurement, encourages local contractors to donate life-saving equipment for distribution within the communities where they are undertaking work, as part of their obligations to provide wider local community benefits during the life of their contract with the Council.

Applications are welcomed from any community groups and clubs based in East Ayrshire who would like to benefit from this equipment. Further details on how the initiative works and how to apply can be found on the East Ayrshire Council website including a full list of locations of current defibrillators in East Ayrshire, how to register your defibrillator, and information on how to use and maintain the equipment.
