Significant funds for the purchase of a vital and much-needed piece of medical equipment was kindly presented within the Lyndoch community this month.

Lyndoch CFS Brigade were the fortunate recipients of $2855 which was used to purchase a defibrillator.

According to CFS members, the equipment will be used during emergencies, including fires, where a member of the public requires assistance.

CFS members explained how they have received indepth training to use the defibrillator.

The funds were the result of a generous donation made by members of the former Lyndoch Baptist Church.

After more than 150 years of history, the church closed its doors on April 30, 2017.

On hand during last week’s presentation were Lyndoch CFS brigade captain Neville Kies, Lyndoch Baptist Church former pastor Dennis Triplett, congregation members Leo and June Bubner with Lyndoch CFS 1st Lieutenant Shane Emms and Barossa CFS Group, deputy group officer Jason Sabeeney.
