Fraserburgh Leisure Centre has raised hundreds of pounds in aid of a new life-saving machine which is now based at the centre.

Thanks to the generosity of visitors and local residents, just under £800 was raised to purchase a defibrillator machine.

A total of six members of staff from the Leisure Centre have underwent training in how to use the equipment, which is now stationed at the centre and ready to use in an emergency.

The new management and staff of the Leisure Centre would like to thank everybody for buying raffles for the Christmas hampers. In particular, centre staff would like to say a special thank you to the Rotary Club of Fraserburgh for their support.

Commenting, Duty Manager Maria Simpson said: “We’d like to thank people for their support and for helping us to raise funds towards this vital piece of equipment that could one day save somebody’s life.”

The lucky winners of the Christmas hamper raffle were Mark Dickson, who won first prize, and Roslin Gray, who picked up second prize. The raffle was drawn by Doreen Henderson.
