Local Football Clubs Join as ONE to Help Create a HEART SAFE Sporting & Community for ALL

A NEW public-access defibrillator has been installed close to the training ground of two Leicester football clubs.

The defibrillator has been installed on a lamp-post column adjacent to the Bus Shelter on Braunstone Lane East, close to where both Leicester City Women and GNG football clubs play.

The device is enclosed in a cabinet which is accessed by a code typed into a keypad. This means the defibrillator is available for public use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In the event of an emergency, anyone ringing 999 would be given the code to open the box and access the defibrillator.

The installation has been made possible thanks to the commitment of both clubs to creating 'heart safe' sporting and community environment at Riverside Football Complex, with the help of local charity the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust and Leicester City Council's ward community funding from Braunstone & Rowley Fields.
