A local Young Farmers' Club has fundraised more than £650 to help replace a stolen defibrillator.
Back in December Edw Valley Young Farmers returned after two years to carol sing around the local community. The singing was undertaken to raise money for the purchase of a new defibrillator for Hundred House Hall, for the benefit of the surrounding community.
Unfortunately the last defibrillator was stolen back in early November and the club felt the importance of their contribution towards a vital lifesaving piece of equipment for the rural community.
On February 5 this year, a new defibrillator and cabinet was installed on the hall.
After three nights battling the December weather the Club managed to raise a total of £659.26 for Friends of Builth Wells and District Healthcare. Secretary Dave Ronicle kindly received the funds from Club Chairman Mark Nixon.
Also at the presentation were Mary Kinsey (community representative of the Friends of Builth Wells Healthcare committee), Suzanne Davies (secretary of Hundred House Hall committee and guardian of the defibrillator), Sian Davies (Edw Valley YFC secretary), Rebecca Williams (club vice chairman) and fellow members of the club.
The hall management committee would like to thank the friends of Builth Wells Health Care, Edw Valley YFC and the community for their generosity.
