More Sports Clubs Told To 'Sign Up For Defibrillators'

Lizzie Jones

Lizzie Jones says there is still money available for the life-saving equipment.

Lizzie Jones has told Pulse 1 & Pulse 2, there are still far too many sports clubs here in West Yorkshire without defibrillators.

The widow of Keighley Cougars player Danny Jones started the campaign to get them into clubs following his death from a cardiac arrest in 2015.

Lizzie has provided dozens of clubs with the life-saving equipment, but says there's still money in the pot for more.

Lizzie told Pulse 1 & Pulse 2: "We will pay up to 75% of the cost of the equipment and often help sides raise the rest of it, it's not taken long at all. The problem is there are still clubs out there that don't have them especially down to the grassroots.

"There's no reason not to have them even if your club is a young club as these defibs work on even one-year-old babies."

"We've covered a whole league in rugby league, over twenty thousand people are now covered with a DJ defib, but we still want people to get in touch and get one if they don't have one. There is still more money."
