The Buckinghamshire Masonic Centenary Foundation (BMCF) have donated £1,800 to install a new public access defibrillator in Buckingham

Andrew Hough, Secretary of the BMCF, was present to see the defibrillator installed, which will serve the local community as well as a growing number of local businesses.

The money for this project came from the voluntary BMCF donation of £3 per member which is levied once a year in addition to the lodge subscription. The committee meet several times a year to review applications for worthwhile causes in Buckinghamshire.

Geoff Shaw, who runs the Buckingham AED Project, commented: 'The unit you so kindly sponsored is now up and running, live and registered with the Ambulance Service.'
