Braunton Caen Rotary Club’s work installing life-saving equipment in the community has been recognised with a national award nomination.

The rotary club was nominated for a UK Heart Safe Award in the Not for Profit Award category.

The ceremony took place last month at The Hilton, Manchester Deansgate, and showcased companies and groups for having heart safe environments such as having defibrillators on site.

The Braunton team has spent the last five years giving advice and support, as well as organising funds for defibrillators.

It has helped to install 24 defibrillators, with 15 available to be accessed by members the public. The community team has also delivered 68 free British Heart Foundation HeartStart sessions to more than 1,100 people.

The initiative was started by John Rendle, with first aid trainer Barrie Charlsworth delivering the HeartStart courses on behalf of the club.

Unfortunately the Braunton team missed out on the night, with the Not for Profit Award going to the Ronnie Richards Memorial Charity.
