A cafe co-owner has appealed to customers and Stamford residents to help raise £1,200 for a defibrillator in the town’s High Street.

Hannah Darby, who runs Cafe Black with Jim Harding, approached St John Ambulance about installing the lifesaving equipment after attending a first aid course.

She was astonished to learn that the survival rate for someone who had stopped breathing was as low as eight per cent when using CPR, but that jumped up to 70 per cent if a defibrillator was used.
