Lindal-based candle company Wax Lyrical has become the first business in South Lakeland to sign up to install a defibrillator outside the firm’s base as part of Cumbria County Council Chairman, Cllr Alan Barry’s ‘Keep Cumbria’s hearts beating campaign.’
The company’s Managing Director, Joanne Barber said: “We have been considering buying a defibrillator for our premises for a while and this worthy appeal is an ideal opportunity for us to get involved.
“I am delighted that we are the first to sign-up and look forward to seeing the defibrillator in place and accessible to the general public whenever it might be needed.”
Cllr Barry added: “I am excited the appeal is off to such a good start and would like to thank Joanne and Wax Lyrical for getting involved and helping to save lives in Lindal. We are currently talking to other businesses in the county who have expressed an interest in purchasing the equipment and I hope many others will follow their example.”
