Bowling club: Defibrillator can prove a lifesaver
9:00am Sunday 8th September 2013 in News
A BOWLING club has invested in a new defibrillator to protect the health of their teams and hundreds of elderly players.
Vulcan Bowling Club boasts 11 teams and more than 200 people, most in their late 70s, who use the facilities each week.
Team members were trained to use the defibrillator at a special session held at the club.
Member of the Newton based club Frank Laird said that the potentially life-saving equipment cost £1,000 and he is hopeful that they will set a precedent for other bowling teams.
