Ben Crean Trust presents defibrillator to Bowdon Cricket, Hockey and Squash Club
6:10pm Thursday 5th December 2013 in News
A TRUST set up by a Hale woman whose son died from a heart condition has presented Bowdon Cricket, Hockey and Squash Club with a defibrillator.
Jennie Crean and her family set up the Ben Crean trust after her 28-year-old son died of a massive heart attack in 2008.
The defibrillator, which will be housed in a special cabinet within the clubhouse, was accepted by David Bellin, chairman of the club and Tina Cullen, who is the player/coach of the Bowdon Hightown.
Tina, who was recently awarded the MBE for services to hockey, holds the record for the most goals in the women’s premier division, and has represented Team GB in two Olympic Games.
The coaches of the cricket, hockey and squash teams have also undertaken the training courses in the use of CPR and the defibrillator, which was delivered by the North West Ambulance Service.
The club has donated more than £400 to The Ben Crean Trust after holding a silent auction and a bucket collection at its beer festival. Several club teams also made donations.
Anyone requiring further information about training courses in the use of CPR and is interested in purchasing a defibrillator for their club or place of work should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or NWAS.
