Llanidloes could soon have another defibrillator installed in the town.

Money raised from selling herbs and plant at Woosnam & Davies newsagents has raised £420 for the Rotary Club of Llanidloes’ defibrillator appeal.

Trudy Davies, of Woosnam and Davies, said: “This year though we have had our wonderful customers add to the selection for selling by giving excess plants.

“What a wonderful community we live in. It’s very much appreciated.”

The local newsagent presented a cheque to John Sheppard of the Rotary Club of Llanidloes adhering to social distancing guidelines.

A defibrillator can restore a normal heartbeat by sending an electric pulse or shock to the heart if the heart suddenly stops.

Since 2017, more than 200 people have been taught by St John Ambulance Cymru members on how to save a life thanks to free defibrillator training sessions held in Llanidloes.

Currently four defibrillators, fundraised through the Rotary, are located at the Arwystli Medical Practice on Mount Lane, St John Ambulance Cymru at the Gro car park, Llanidloes Community First Responders and at the town’s Old Post Office.
