Staff at a March building society have presented a cheque for £220 towards life saving equipment for the town.
Nationwide Building Society staff handed over the funds to Councillor Rob Skoulding for his growing defibrillator campaign that has installed 32 piece of life-saving defibrillators around the town.
Cllr Skoulding said: “The next defibrillator will be outside Fossils galore.
“Our next step is to keep a couple of pieces of equipment back so that if anybody is waiting for a heart bypass and wants to borrow one to give the peace of mind until their operation then they can have it.
“The aim is to reduce worry for people and their families.”

Gaps in coverage fall within the Gaul Road and south of Estover Road area which have been highlighted as priorities once funds become available, he added.
