A SOCIAL club in Patna is the latest East Ayrshire community venue to receive a donation of a life-saving defibrillator.

The equipment was donated to the Bonnie Doon Masonic Lodge No. 565 Social Club by Magnus Electrical.

East Ayrshire Council’s health and safety service and procurement team encourages local contractors to donate life-saving equipment for distribution within the communities where they are undertaking work, as part of their obligations to provide wider local community benefits during the life of their contract with the council.

Life saving defibrillators are in more than 30 towns and villages across East Ayrshire, including Cumnock, Auchinleck, Drongan, Mauchline and Catrine.
