Freemasons help fund a Defibrillator for the MVS
Freemasons in East Lancashire have presented a defibrillator to MVS Port of Manchester.
The presentation was made by Peter Hegarty and Stan Jackson from Salford, who were accompanied by Millie McDonagh of the DefibShop, who provided the defibrillator.
Receiving the defibrillator, Temporary Regional Volunteer Officer for the North West, Alexander Rodgers, said; “It’s fantastic to have received such a generous donation enabling us to obtain what is literally a lifesaving piece of equipment.
I would like to express my thanks and the thanks of MVS as a whole, to both the Masons of East Lancashire for the donation and to Defib Shop for supplying such an amazing piece of equipment.”
He continued, “The unit will hopefully never have the need to use the new device, but everyone can be assured that it will accompany us to all future events, whatever size, and should the need arise, we now have the equipment to potentially save a life.
Our statement is ‘We Change Lives’ and with this donation we can certainly do that.”
