March Rotary Club presented a defibrillator to March Conservative Club at its meeting last Monday.

The crucial piece of equipment can make the difference between life and death in the case of a sudden cardiac arrest

Even inexperienced first aiders can use it since it tells you if the compressions are too slow or too quick, too shallow or too deep.

The presentation, on behalf of the Rotarians, was made by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire roving reporter Johnny Dee, who was guest speaker and entertainer.

As the night drew to a close, Rotarian Mike Enderby thanked Johnny for a memorable evening.
