Society helping to put safety first at local bowls club PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 10 April 2017
Earl Shilton Building Society is supporting a local bowls club in their efforts to raise funds for the installation of a defibrillator.  

The Society has made a donation to the defibrillator fund, and Kingscroft Bowls Club is planning additional community events with the aim of raising a further £1,200 to pay for the project.

The in-situ defibrillator will be placed in the clubhouse, accessible to all members and visitors.

John York, Honorary Treasurer at Kingscroft Bowls Club, explained: “The idea of getting a defibrillator installed was suggested by one of our members and we have made it the focus of our fundraising for this year.

“We have a number of older members and although we hope we never have to use it, it will be good to have peace of mind knowing that the defibrillator is there in case of an emergency.

“We’d like to thank Earl Shilton Building Society for its generous donation.”

Paul Tilley, Chief Executive at Earl Shilton Building Society, said: “It’s fantastic to have the chance to contribute towards this important project, which will give members reassurance that emergency provisions are available while they are enjoying the facilities at the bowls club.

“The bowls club and the building society have a historical connection through Mr E Harry Gilbert, who was a founding member of both institutions. We both remain at the heart of the community in Earl Shilton over 100 years on, and working together on projects such as this is a great opportunity to reaffirm that commitment.”

The club, which is based on Kings Walk in Earl Shilton, is planning additional functions throughout 2017, the first of which took place on Saturday 18th March. The event included a raffle with a range of prizes on offer, and all proceeds from the event were put towards the defibrillator fund.

The president of the bowls club has also selected the defibrillator fund as its nominated charitable cause for 2017, meaning a portion of all donations raised by the club will help to support the project.

Earl Shilton Building Society, meanwhile, is continuing to offer charitable funding to worthy causes across the local area in 2017, through its ‘In the community’ scheme.

All types of community groups, charitable organisations, teams, clubs and schools can take part. However, to ensure the scheme remains truly local, applications will only be accepted from the following postcode areas; LE, CV9 to 13 and DE11 to 15.
