Defibrilator installed

By James Popplewell

Your Club now has a life saving piece of kit!

The Club is delighted to confirm that it has been able to install a new defibrillator thanks to donations from the Leicestershire & Rutland Cricket League, Pirelli Tyres and Countesthorpe Parish Council.

The external cabinet which will keep the defibrillator safe has been part-funded by the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust (JHMT), which works with sports clubs and community groups to raise awareness of sudden heart deaths, particularly in young people.

The JHMT is a local charity which was set up in memory of Leicester teenager Joe Humphries, who collapsed and died while out jogging near his family home in Rothley. Joe was a victim of sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS) – a group of lethal heart diseases which can cause sudden cardiac death in young people.

Club members at Countesthorpe have also taken part in Joe’s Mini HeartStart for Sports, a JHMT training programme which aims to ensure sports club members – including players, officials and volunteers – know how to use a defibrillator and can perform CPR in an emergency.

The Club is hosting a training session on Saturday 30th March to teach a number of its members how to use the defibrilator. Please pencil this date in your diary as it is not to be missed.
