Housebuilder supports lifesaving appeal at Vulcan Park

A bowling club from Newton-le-Willows is a step closer to buying a vital piece of lifesaving equipment, thanks to a community grant from Persimmon Homes. 

The North West regional business has donated £350 towards the Vulcan Bowling Club’s defibrillator appeal, to help purchase the equipment to provide emergency treatment to someone who has had a heart attack.

Sales director for Persimmon Homes North West, David Hodgson, said: “The bowling club is located right next to our new homes development, Vulcan Park, and when we heard that the members were raising funds for such an important cause, we were keen to support them.”

Stan Hughes is secretary of the club. He said: “We celebrated our centenary last year and have more than 100 members, ranging in age from a 12 year old to people in their late eighties. We think it is important, with many older people in the club, to have a defibrillator and someone trained to use it, so we’ve been raising funds.

“We are very grateful to Persimmon Homes for their donation.”

Anyone interested in supporting the Vulcan Bowling Club’s defibrillator appeal, or keen to join the club, can contact them on 01925 223149.
