Concept Hygiene donates defibrillator after theft of unit

A community funded defibrillator which was stolen from Windmill Hill Children’s Centre has been replaced free of charge by Liverpool based Concept Hygiene, leading provider of defibrillators in the North West.

The defibrillator was a joint funded project between the Big Local, Windmill Hill School, Children’s Centre, Nursery, Church and Onward Homes.

Thanks to the alert circulated by Runcorn Police, Andy Cotter, Managing Director of Concept Hygiene offered to replace the defibrillator.

He said “After learning of how hard the community had worked to facilitate the defibrillator in the first instance, it is really disheartening that the unit had been stolen. Being a local company, we were only too happy to help out a community in need.”

Although CCTV covered the area on the night of the theft, weather conditions were extremely poor and no images were able to be used. The CCTV has now upgraded outside the Children’s Centre covering the area and the new defibrillator is back on the wall in a dedicated cabinet.

Claire Pentin, Principal Manager, said “We are so grateful to Concept Hygiene for the kind gesture of replacing the defibrillator. This is a community asset, which is accessible 24hrs a day.”
