The Stephen Carey Fund has unveiled its latest defibrillator at Tweedmouth Bowling Club.

George Meakin, spokesman for Tweedmouth Bowling Club said “We are delighted to have a defibrillator on the site but we can’t stress enough that it is not just for the benefit of the club but the whole community, we pride ourselves in being a community club and this installation is simply an example of that sentiment.

“Our thanks go to all who were involved in the fundraising efforts and to those who made donations, we hope this device is never needed but undoubtedly it will be and hopefully it will save lives.”

David Wilson from the Stephen Carey Fund added: “Our aim is to install these devices across Northumberland and we were acutely aware that so far we hadn’t quite reached the border areas, this installation in Tweedmouth sees that issue partially addressed.”

This defibrillator becomes the eleventh that the fund have been involved with since their official launch in February 2012 and keeps them well on track to achieve their goal of placing 20-30 units before the end of 2014, if you would like more information about the fund please visit
