At the regular meeting of The Lord Roborough Lodge, No 5789 held on 22nd June, W Bro Clem Spencer of the Heartswell Charity presented a defibrillator to W Bro Tony Banbury, a member of the Lodge and a Reader (Lay Minister) at St Mary and All Saints Church Plymstock.
The defibrillator will be placed in the church for use should a cardiac emergency occur. Earlier in June this year Lord Roborough’s Worshipful Master, W Bro John Pritchard, had undertaken a wing walk in aid of Heartswell – raising over £1100 for the charity. On hearing of the possible precautionary need of a defibrillator at St Mary’s church he asked that the money he raised be used to provide the machine. W Bro Tony Banbury warmly thanked the charity and W Bro Pritchard stating that the gift will be gratefully received but, hopefully not too often, faithfully applied!
