Inspirational stories help life-saving campaign

Beverley MP Graham Stuart believes inspirational stories from residents can kick-start his Community Access Defibrillators for East Yorkshire campaign. He was speaking following the second meeting of the CADEY committee, whose target is to provide public defibrillators for the 60 communities across Beverley and Holderness currently without one.

Mr Stuart then visited the Boyes store in Wednesday Market, Beverley, which had a defibrillator installed last year thanks to the campaigning efforts of local resident, Mr Willy McCutcheon. Back in 2016, Mr McCutcheon was himself saved by a defibrillator at Cottingham Leisure Centre following a collapse while playing walking football.

Working with Mr Stuart, local shops and the Yorkshire Ambulance Service, Mr McCutcheon has since devoted much of his time to raising money and awareness for more life-saving machines in Beverley and the surrounding area. The defibrillator outside Boyes has already been used.  The local MP also reserved praise for Rose Willoughby, whose tireless activities in partnership with the town’s Cherry Tree Advice Centre saw two defibrillators installed on the Swinemoor Estate.
