Fraserburgh Leisure Centre are holding a raffle draw and race night to raise money for a defibrillator which will be stationed at the centre.

The fund-raisers hope to raise £1,000 for the equipment, with a Christmas hamper up for grabs as the raffle prize.

A total of six of the Leisure Centre’s staff have already undertaken training to use the live-saving machine as well as first aid training ahead of the fund-raising.

Those who have taken part in the training are manager Steve Wilson and employees Alistair Brown, Tracy Harper, Gary Lamb, Emma Ruxton and Maria Simpson.

Organisers hope that in an emergency situation people in need of the defibrillator could contact the Leisure Centre while an ambulance arrive as trained Leisure Centre staff will always be available on-site.

Raffle tickets to raise money for the equipment can be bought from the Leisure Centre for £1 a strip.

In addition to the raffle draw, a Sheep Race Night and Disco will also be held at the Leisure Centre to raise funds. The race night and disco will start at 8pm on 
Saturday, December 28.

Commenting, Steve Wilson said: “It would be great if people could come along and buy raffles to raise funds for this worthy cause - it could save somebody’s life or even your own for a pound.”
