============================================================

On June 21st, the BBC One Show highlighted the life saving value of Public Access Defibrillators (PADS) which the Rotary Club of King's Lynn has pledged to purchase and site in the Town Centre.

Under the leadership of Rotarian Andy Holford, two fellow Rotarians and three friends set out on a sponsored cycle ride around the boundary of Norfolk, a distance of 223 miles, over a period of 17 hours and 25 minutes.

Andy said that all the riders enjoyed the experience of travelling through some of Norfolk's finest countryside, following many country lanes, and despite one fall, a bee sting and a puncture, everyone arrived back in King's Lynn on time and in very good order.

To date the amount raised by sponsorship is in the region of £1000, with hopefully more to come in from the website - https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/kldefib 

which is open until 25th July or from anyone wishing to support this important project can contact Andy Holford on 01553 774135 or 07799 890700 .
