South Lochaber Defibrillators

A bit late but better late than never. As you possibly know we were raising money over FebrurayFest for Defibrillators in Glencoe, Ballachulish and Onich. With all the raffle tickets bought and items sold through our yard sale which is still on going. You can see what is still available here. (Any money continued to be raised through the yard sale will be split between the three villages for maintance of the defibrillators) We managed to raise an impressive £2010.60.

In Glencoe the Defibrillator will be outside the Ambulance Station, The Defibrillator in Ballachulish has already been installed and is at the Medical Centre. In Onich the defibrillator is to be installed inside the old red phone box outside the Onich Store and Cafe.

Thanks to everyone who has bought raffle tickets and this year items from our Yard Sale in the last 4 years, our Big Winter Raffle has raised £8180 for a variety of causes including the Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team and to set up the Glencoe Mountain Avalanche Transceiver Park, and the local villages public access defibrillators fund.
