In 2017, the membership of the Society approved a proposal by the committee to make a donation to a deserving local charity or cause. The Park Centre's proposed purchase of a defibrillator was the overwhelming choice of the membership as it was perceived to be an asset to the community of users of the premises.
The presentation was made to Mr David Clark of The Park Centre's Board of Directors at the Society's well attended Annual General Meeting on Thursday 12th April, 2018. In receiving the donation, Mr Clark thanked the Society but also pointed out that he hoped that it would be a long time before the defibrillator ever needs to be used!
