12 defibrillators delivered by Millie’s Dream appeal
A COMMUNITY defibrillator has been installed in Henley town centre.
The life-saving device was supplied by the Millie’s Dream appeal and was unveiled outside HSBC in Market Place on Saturday.
It was paid for by Piers Burnell, from Remenham, whose sister Joanna died from a heart attack four years ago.
It is the 12th defibrillator to be installed thanks to the appeal, which was launched by Sarah Roberts, of King’s Road, Henley, in September last year and is named after her seven-year-old daughter, who has a heart and lung condition.
Miss Roberts had originally aimed to raise £15,000 to equip 10 local schools with a defibrillator but the appeal has now raised more than £25,000 and is supplying the machines to more schools as well as whole communities.
