A lifesaving defibrillator has been installed at Oakham Rugby Club.

The equipment was part-funded by the Karen Ball Fund, which has now helped pay for 34 defibrillators in Rutland.

Barbara Crellin, who organised the installation, said: “With the amount of sport played at this facility and the amount of people that visit the ground it has to be an ideal place to put such a valuable piece of life saving equipment.”

She thanked the Karen Ball Fund, Oakham Rugby Club, the Agricultural Society, Royce Rangers, the Rotary Club of Rutland and The Lions Club of Rutland for making the installation possible.
