The Stephen Carey Fund has scored a community hat-trick.
Last Thursday, it unveiled a public access defibrillator in Longhoughton, on Monday, another was presented to Longhirst Hall Golf Club, organised in partnership with North East Hearts With Goals, and tonight a third will be rolled out in Hadston.
Fund vice-chairman Dougie McEwan said: “It has been a fairly hectic week for the team with the roll-out of three new defibrillators and also dealing with discussions on several more to come in the near future, but this is what it is all about for us and we just can’t thank enough everyone for the support we receive for our plans from local communities.”
The Stephen Carey Fund, this year’s Jam Jar Army charity, is raising money for community defibrillators, first-aid training and first-aid kits.
It was set up in memory of 21-year-old Stephen Carey, who collapsed and died while playing football.
New labels for collecting jars are now available from the Gazette office at 32 Bondgate Without, Alnwick.
So eat the jam, empty your jar and start filling it with change to go towards our target of £10,000 to help put more defibrillators out in the community.
