Donations are beginning to pour in for a campaign aiming to bring four life-saving defibrillators to Honiton.

Caroline Kolek, town councillor and member of the campaign, said hundreds of pounds has already been raised towards the £5,000 fundraising target.

The group held an information stall at Honiton’s market where they brought along an example of an automated electronic defibrillator.

Dan Lavery, of Devon Freewheelers, provided a training mannequin used for learning how to resuscitate people.

To support the campaign, Honiton Tesco raffled off a luxury hamper which, combined with the sale of raffle tickets, raised £460.

Honiton Fishing Club also donated £50 the ‘Honiton Has a Heart’ campaign.

Mrs Kolek added: “A big thank you to Tesco, HSBC, Honiton Fishing Club and also Honiton Hospital League of Friends, which has already pledged £1,800.”
