Exeter City Supporters' Trust would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the collection for a defibrillator for the new Stagecoach Adam Stansfield Stand.
The target of £1400 was reached late on Monday evening thanks to some very generous donations from overseas exiles.
At 8pm on Monday the total had reached £881, a couple of hours later it reached £1100.
This good news was topped by an offer from Chris Richards, a member of our matchday medical team from Total Safety Training & Consultancy, who has offered to supply and install the AED and cabinet as well as covering any further deficit in funding.
So many people have made this possible, from those who donated in our bucket collection at the Swindon Town match, to those who donated online or spread the word about our collection and encouraged others to donate.
The Trust was delighted to receive offers of practical help from Corporate Trust member Jeff Gregory of LifeSaver Technology, and from Dan Osborne from the charity Jay's Aim.
Central FC's under-9s are donating the takings from their Christmas party raffle & this has enabled us to upgrade to a more sophisticated paediatric device which can be used on youngsters without the need to change paddles.
London Exiles and individual Trust members had also promised to make up the difference if donations slowed.
A message to our generous donor from the USA. We would like to thank you personally so please get in touch with your details.
We will continue to keep you updated with our progress and we thank you all, the Exeter City family is an amazingly powerful and compassionate community.
