Lian Everett, who was involved in driving the application for the donation, said: “This is wonderful news for the community in Eden Park, which could potentially save lives.

"It was very much a committee effort, with members having worked hard to get a defibrillator installed. We are extremely grateful to CALA Homes and Bloor Homes for their donation.”

A resident in the community has volunteered to have the defibrillator located on the side of their property, and the Eden Park Community Association will select a group to attend a training course to learn how to use the device.

The closest defibrillator was previously located at Elliot’s Field Shopping Park.
