Thanks to their fundraising, together with support from several local businesses, Welcome Nurseries Greetlands now has a defibrillator outside its building on Exchange Street available for the whole community to use.
Kirstie Knowles, Nursery Manger, said: “The fete was a great success with lots of families, businesses and community neighbours attending and supporting, and lots of fun was had whilst still remembering the importance of why it was planned - to reveal the defibrillator to the community.
“The staff are truly grateful to everyone who has supported the fundraising and also to all who came to the fete for a fabulous day.”
Calder Valley Security made a donation towards the cost of the defibrillator while The Nook, Craft, West Vale Fisheries, Bilouair, Eleanor Jacks, Café Thai Restaurant, Café Italia, Di’s Pies, Tesco, Co-op, Helen’s Hampers and Vela donated hampers, vouchers and gifts to help with the fundraising.
The Mayor also handed out certificates to some children who recently had their work published in a young writers’ poetry book.
