• New Defibrillator for busy car park in Thame

    DefibRacquets Fitness Centre, located in the busy town centre car park behind the Cattle Market in Thame, would like to invite everyone to the unveiling of the new public defibrillator on 24th February.

    We started raising money for the defibrillator 2 years ago when one our members, Helen Plant, donated some money to run a Xmas Hamper Raffle in aid of a new defibrillator.  This was followed by a not-for-profit DropiT21 seminar and then a number of other events through last year.  With help from the Staying Alive Thame we finally raised the full amount needed and have now installed it outside the club in the Cattle Market.

    Simon Martin, owner of Racquets Fitness Centre, says ‘I’d like to dedicate this defibrillator to my dad Richard Martin who died one year ago of cancer but also suffered with heart arrhythmia.  Dad was a dedicated Thame resident and MD of Racquets for 20 years.’

    The defibrillator will be unveiled by Thame Mayor Linda Emery at 1.30pm on 24th February.

    Please stay for a free drink in the bar immediately after.
