Saving Lives at The Bennachie Visitor Centre

The Bennachie Centre Trust are delighted to announce the installation of a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) at the Bennachie Visitor Centre.

The Bennachie Heart Appeal launched in the spring of this year with the aim of raising funds to purchase and install a PAD for the benefit of visitors to Bennachie and the wider local community; and also to raise awareness of how to use this life saving piece of equipment.

Bennachie Visitor Centre Warden, Jan Lythgoe said “Since the launch, visitors to the Bennachie Visitor Centre have supported the appeal in lots of different ways and to everyone who has bought a T-shirt, badge or car sticker, made a donation or attended a fund raising activity,we thank you.

With the support of a British Heart Foundation grant the Bennachie Visitor Centre now also has a number of ‘Call, Push, Rescue’ training kits and we’ll be planning a series of informal practice sessions for the public.”
