The Horrill Wellbeing Centre in Dibden was chosen as the local cause for the SO45 Lottery in the March draw. They have received a cheque for £502.00 and this is being put towards our fund to buy a Public Access Defibrillator, which will be placed on the outside of our Building and will benefit the whole community. The Defibrillator, together with a sealed waterproof cabinet will cost £1690.00 and they have raised £1258.00 towards this so far.
We are very grateful to the SO45 Lottery for supporting us and hope to purchase the Defibrillator very soon.
