A town council has matched donations from a garage sale to provide two new defibrillators in Thorpe St Andrew.
The life-saving equipment will be installed at the Fitzmaurice Park and Sir George Morse Park.
Half of the money raised for the defibrillators came from the Dussindale garage sale, which was organised by Tracey Cooper.
She said: 'Although I initiated the garage sale, it was a community activity with everyone pulling together to make it a success.
'It was great fun and we all made many new friends. We love living in Dussindale it has such a strong community feeling.'
