Proper Pubs installs 80 defibrillators across estate
Proper Pubs has installed 80 defibrillators across its estate with the help of its locals.
Proper Pubs, the wet-led division of Admiral Taverns, has installed 80 defibrillators across its estate with the help of its locals.
The defibrillators are positioned outside the pubs for medical emergencies, which the public can access, and are designed to provide emergency support for individual communities.
Defibrillators are a medical device which sends an electric pulse or shock to the heart to restore a normal heartbeat when an individual is in cardiac arrest. So far, three lives have been saved by the new kit.
Each pub was challenged to raise £1,500 within its community to fund the defibrillator.
"As the cost of living continues to rise, it has been recognised that pubs aren’t just somewhere for people to go for a drink, they are also vital lifelines for the community, bringing people together to support each other," says Mark Brooke, director of Proper Pubs. "It’s great to see this being recognised through the fundraising, and even better to be able to provide defibrillators to communities up and down the country.
"I am so thankful to our amazing operators and their communities who have all come together to create this success. This is the pinnacle of effective fundraising initiatives, demonstrating our commitment to community focus."
Admiral Taverns' Proper Pubs has more than 165 community pubs across England, Scotland, and Wales.
