A councillor in the Staffordshire Moorlands is continuing her campaign to increase the amount of defibrillator’s which are accessible for the public to use in an emergency.

Councillor Elizabeth Whitehouse, a member of the Cheadle Town Council, has been continuing with her campaign to set up several defibrillators throughout Cheadle and it has continued to be successful.

Cllr Whitehouse, who is the Deputy Mayor of Cheadle, told us: “The campaign is going well, I’m just waiting on some final details for my next installation.

So far we’ve had one new install and two that have been fixed and got back in working order.

So three in total we’ve given the community access to.

I’m aiming for another seven but with one close to being installed and I know one is in the pipeline that should be halfway for my goal.”

The campaign to have ten defibrillator’s installed began in March 2020, just before the nation was put into lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Cllr Whitehouse said: “I’m working in partnership with AEDdonate to fundraise for ten new defibrillators across Cheadle to make sure that if the worst happens, we can be as prepared as possible.

I feel that it’s vital for the community since the loss of our ambulance post, and together we can pull together and do what’s best for Cheadle.”

Cllr Whitehouse informed Times & Echo that there are no fundraising events planned at the moment, but that there are collection boxes throughout the town.

She added: “I’m looking forward for new fundraising ideas.”

To donate, go online to www.aeddonate.org.uk/projects/cheadle, or pop your donation in one of the collection tubs around town.

Any business interested in sponsoring a defib can contact Elizabeth by email at elizabeth.anne.whitehouse@gmail.com.
