Defibrillators for St John Ambulance
Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes are donating defibrillators from sites across Wiltshire including Chippenham, Devizes, Westbury, Melksham and Calne in answer to St John Ambulance's nationwide appeal - called Take the Strain - to source desperately needed equipment to help it in the vital role it is playing, including 1,000 defibrillators.
The country's biggest housebuilder has committed to donating the defibrillators from all its sites - an estimated 400 worth more than £300,000. Teams from Barratt are urgently gathering up the defibrillators from their sites across the country so they can get them to where they are needed. As part of its response to support the fight against coronavirus, Barratt Developments has also donated £100,000 to the NHS Charities Together appeal.
