Markus gives Heartstart a nod

THE Hawkesbury Heartstart campaign received national attention last week when Macquarie MP Louise Markus spoke in Parliament on it.

She described the campaign to fundraise for many more defibrillators to be stationed out in the community, and praised residents, as well as Richmond Club, for their reception of it.

"The people of the Hawkesbury are a close, warm-hearted and connected community and it is heartwarming, how many have already put up their hands to get started,’’ she said.

"Organisations such as Chesalon Nursing Home at Richmond, Hawkesbury Village, Windsor Bowling Club and St Peter’s Anglican Church at Richmond have jumped on board and are committed to raising funds to purchase their own defibrillators.

"The Richmond Club is a great backer of this cause and whilst they already have a defibrillator, they are looking to get more.

"I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Chisolm Catholic Primary School in Bligh Park who have recently purchased a defibrillator after a Year 4 student collapsed.

"I would also like to thank Dr Ravi for his foresight; passion and drive in ensuring this project will come to fruition and the members of Windsor Rotary Club for showing their aptitude in coming alongside on this very worthwhile project.’’
