The charity, Heart of Richmond, aims to put in place the life-saving equipment at locations across Richmond.
The charity has been launched by Richmond businessman, Lee Whitworth, an ex-serviceman who runs A&E Harmonious Compliance Training Limited with his wife Alison.
The first defib machine has already been installed on a poll in Darlington Road.
The charity now wants to raise funds for five more to be spread around Richmond.
These would be positioned:
- Half way down Whitefields
- Oliver Road
- Top of Gilling Road
- Beechfield Rd & Fontenay Rd crossroads
- Fieldings Yard, Reeth Road, Mill Lane Crossroads
Lee said: “Our greatest goal would be that ever house within Richmond has a defib within half a mile so please help by donating if you can.
“Companies that want to find a defib near them should also get in touch as long as it’s public access we can help.”
