A new defibrillator has been unveiled at a church in Potters Bar.

The defibrillator at King Charles the Martyr Church in Mutton Lane was unveiled and blessed by the Reverend Atalie Gaines on Sunday, January 21.

It was installed following fundraising by the 5th Potters Bar Rainbows, Brownies and Guides, along with King Charles the Martyr Church and local charity DiPPs (Defibrillators in Public Places). The children raised the money with a table top sale, a cake sale and a district carol service.

The life-saving equipment is located just outside the church halls so can be accessed by anyone in the community should the need arise.

Following a church service, DiPPs educated both children and adults on how to use the machine and perform CPR.

Rainbow leader Hayley May said: “It was great to see so many of our youngsters willing to learn how to possibly save a life.”
