The first public accessible defibrillator is going to be installed on the wall outside the HSBC Bank in Market Square, next to the phone box on Saturday 20 September. The money for the defibrillator has been raised through the Millie’s Dream campaign and the date marks the first anniversary of the campaign.
The Mayor, Councillor Martin Akehurst and his wife Glynnis will be officially unveiling the defibrillator at 10.am. This will be followed by public drop in sessions from 10-12 noon to learn about how to use this life saving device in Market Square outside the Cargo shop.
Sarah Roberts, Millie’s Mum and founder of the charity said, “I am delighted that we are going to have a centrally located defib in Henley for the general public to be able to access and use. I hope that lots of people will come along to the drop in sessions on 20 September.”
