New defibrillator unveiled in old Angel Hill phone box

A new life-saving defibrillator has been officially unveiled on Angel Hill in Bury St Edmunds, housed in an old telephone box.
The life saving device is the third of it’s kind to be installed in the centre of the town along side defibrillators at the Arc shopping centre and outside McDonalds.

It was funded jointly by Business Improvement District (BID) organisation Our Bury St Edmunds and Bury St Edmunds Town Council.
Businessman Paul Hicklin, who attended the unveiling, has been campaigning for 24-hour public access defibrillators since his father suffered a cardiac arrest and died in 2012.

Mr Hicklin’s family and friends have raised more £12,500 and previously helped to fund the other defibrillators in the town.
