Colyford’s Big Breakfast raises cash for defibrillator

Colyford Memorial Hall’s annual, charity ‘big breakfast’ was declared a sizzling success – the best yet – helping to raise money for a defibrillator for the village.

Simon Card, chairman of the hall trustees, said: “We really enjoy running these breakfasts which brings the community together particularly when we are raising money for such an important project.

“Defibrillators are expensive but essential for local communities and we have talked about getting one for some time. The present plan is to install the equipment on an outside wall of the hall so that it can be used by anyone in the village as necessary.”

On offer at the event was a ‘Full English’ for £6 or a ‘Continental’ for £4.
