A community group has teamed up with a north-east supermarket to help buy lifesaving equipment.
Aden Country Park’s allotment group will work with Mintlaw Co-op to raise funds for three defibrillators.
The group is calling for donations for the equipment and housing units which would be located at Aden Country Park, the Mintlaw shop and another will be set in the rural area.
Money has been raised through a coffee morning at the Aden Allotments, fundraising events in the Co-op and cash donations from local farmers.
Aden Allotments chairwoman Paula Cordiner said: “Each defibrillator costs roughly £1,000 including the housing unit which protects the defib from the weather and vandalism.
“Our total so far is £2,100 so we have nearly reached our target.
“If anyone would like to make a donation to the cause they can be handed in to Mintlaw Co-op, or cheques made payable to Buchan Development Partnership.”
The group is also looking to offer first aid training, including on the new defibrillators. Dates have yet to be announced for the training events but it will be open to anyone who wants to attend.
The next coffee morning will take place at the allotments on September 29.
