The Tully and Mission Beach branches of the Lions Club have generously donated a defibrillator to the Tully Support Centre. This vital piece of life-saving equipment was officially presented to Shane Greenwood, the Manager of the TSC, by Michael Ottone, President of the Tully Lions Club, and Charles Rick, member of the Mission Beach Lions Club, on Monday, July 26, 2021.
Sheila Lawler, a Mission Beach Lions Club member, who is also on the Local Ambulance Committee, was instrumental in creating the connection with the Tully Support Centre, who had been looking for a partner to purchase the defibrillator for some time. When Shane requested that the Lions Club consider a partnership, Sheila championed the purchase. As a result, the Tully and the Mission Beach branches of the Lions Club combined to share the full $3,500 cost of this crucial equipment and donate it to the Tully Support Centre.
The defibrillator will be mounted on the wall outside the entrance of the TSC and directly in sight of the Centre’s CCTV and Security System, and thus be accessible 24/7 to anyone needing to use it to save another person whose heart has stopped beating.
“On behalf of the Tully Support Centre, I wish to express our grateful thanks to the Tully and Mission Beach Lions Clubs for their generous and life-saving donation,” said Shane Greenwood.
“Ten thousand people per annum visit the TSC. We are also next to the kindergarten and close to the Courthouse, and we have considerable foot traffic pass our Centre. Whilst one hopes to never have to use this equipment, it is reassuring to know that it is here if needed and may benefit not just the TSC but also our neighbours and passers-by,” he advised.
“The TSC is extremely grateful, and I also sincerely thank the Tully and Mission Beach Lions Club on behalf of the community at large.”
