Quins take heart

QuinsPEMBROKE DOCK HARLEQUINS RFC recently took possession of a Defi brillator from Dr Gareth Roberts who is a volunteer with the Welsh Hearts Charity. The sum of £1,000 was raised during the annual Quins’ Carnival, and the Carnival Committee, led by Michael Scourfi eld, offered to donate the money towards the purchase of the Defi brillator.

The chances of somebody surviving after a heart attack are greatly increased if a defi brillator is available and can be used. The apparatus will, hopefully, never have to be used; but in the event that it does, during rugby matches, training or functions down at the Pembroke Dock Harlequins, there is now a defi brillator present to be used by those who are trained.
