A FUN day will be held at Romsley and Hunnington Cricket and Bowls Club from 1pm next Sunday, September 16, in a bid to raise £1,200 to buy a defibrillator for the club.

Debara Hill, who has organised the event with club owner Mark Tyler, said currently more than 30,000 people suffered an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the UK every year and without treatment 90 to 95 per cent of those victims would die.

“If CPR and defibrillation are provided within three to five minutes of collapse a victim’s chances of survival can increase from six per cent to 74 per cent.

“Cardiac arrest is a condition which can affect all of us, regardless of age, gender or health.

“By purchasing a defibrillator, which will be stored in a safe cabinet on the outside of our clubhouse, we are helping to make our club a heart safe environment.”

The day will feature many activities, including cricket, bowls, tug-of-war, clay pigeon shooting, disco and barbecue.

There will also be a raffle with several prizes, including signed sporting memorabilia and a dishwasher, from Hughes Electrical.
