The Malmesbury League of Friends (MLOF) has made further recent donations, totalling over £21,000, following requests from a number of local organisations.
For Malmesbury Primary Care Centre, MLOF has purchased a Health Care Monitor, which can perform contactless monitoring for a range of functions, saving over 20 appointments a week, and two cardiac monitoring machines, saving patients countless visits to hospital.
As part of its programme to buy defibrillators where they are needed locally, MLOF has purchased three more machines, at Malmesbury Youth Football Club and in two local villages, Eastcourt and Braydon. The purchase of further defibrillators for other local sports clubs is under active consideration.
Finally, it has purchased a set of garden furniture for local care home Athelstan House, for the enjoyment of its residents.
MLOF chairman David Hide said: “These latest requests are typical of those we receive. Although some of them involve quite modest sums, each one will nevertheless make a major difference to the lives of those who will benefit.
“We are always happy to consider requests for help for those living in the Malmesbury area, who have a special need.”
Some of the garden furniture purchased by MLOF for the residents of Athelstan House is shown below.
