The first defibrillator was donated by the Trust to Heart of Hawick on 22 April 2015.

It has been confirmed that a second defibrillator will be donated by Avril’s Trust to Burnfoot Hub/Burnfoot Community Centre upon the completion of the building work that is being carried out. Burnfoot Hub/Burnfoot Community Centre is scheduled to be opened to the public by the end of 2015.

The Trust is also currently trying to secure a site for a third location for a defibrillator within one of the business premises in the area covering between the Horse and Mart Street.

It is the aim of Avril’s Trust to have all three of the proposed defibrillators fully functional before the end of 2015, and these will be continually maintained by us over their entire lifetime.
