Staff and shoppers at a convenience store paid for a public defibrillator for a north Norfolk town.
Stalham Town Council received a cheque for £1024.36 from Stalham Shopper at its monthly town council meeting on Monday, March 13.
The money was raised by staff at the High Street shop from a raffle and through Nisa's Making a Difference Locally charity.
Store owner Nigel Dowdney said he hoped the equipment would be of use, and manager Adrian Shipley added: 'It's such a valuable piece of equipment and could be the difference between life and death. We would like to thank our customers for supporting the initiative in-store.'
Susan Wellerd, of Stalham Town Council, said 'The town has a large number of elderly people and this life-saving device will be a great asset for the community.'
