On Friday 6th June, Andrew Innes Plumbing & Heating Ltd donated a defibrillator to enjoyleisure’s General Manager Bill Axon. This is for use at the Forester Park facilities in Tranent.
Following the tragic death last year of a young man playing football in Edinburgh, Tranent business man, Mr Innes felt he wanted to do something to prevent something like this happening in his local community. Andrew explains
I have a son, very close to his age. The thought of losing a child so young and full of potential was devastating.
The tragedy got me thinking about my local community and its own youth football team. I got in touch with Tranent Football Club and enjoyleisure to find out what I could do to prevent such an incident occurring here.
Bill Axon added,
We are very grateful to Andrew for his generous donation of a defibrillator to the Forester Park facility. This act of community spirit will enable enjoyleisure to provide extra reassurance to all users of the facility whether they are schools, community clubs, players and spectators. This valued contribution comes at a time when enjoyleisure is about to install defibrillators within its major facilities across the county.
