New defibrillator installed at canal-side pub in Brierley Hill

The lifesaving defibrillator at the Tenth Lock pub

A lifesaving defibrillator has been installed at a popular canal-side pub in Brierley Hill thanks to match funding and a generous donation from the brewery.

The Tenth Lock pub on Delph Road in Brierley Hill has become the latest location in the area to host a lifesaving Automated External Defibrillator for the local community.

Funded with help of match funding from the Department of Health & Social Care and a £750 donation from Marstons Brewery, the publicly accessible machine is now charged and ready for use should any customers or nearby locals suffer a cardiac arrest. Nicola, Manager at the Tenth Lock, said:

"Our customers were ready to start the long process of fundraising for a new defib, but with the help of a grant forwarded to us through London Hearts and an incredible donation from Marstons to make up the rest, we’re so pleased that our pub and the surrounding community now have our own life saving defibrillator.

"We'll be arranging free training here at the pub to help locals get the confidence to use it, and also work to get a bleed kit here as well."
