A SPORTS club in Watersfield near Pulborough has a new defibrillator thanks to local fundraising and a sports grant from UK Power Networks.

Anne Miller, who works in the pensions team at UK Power Networks, applied to her employer for a £250 Team Sport Award grant to match money raised for a defibrillator at the sports ground in Sandy Lane.

The ground is used by Watersfield Football Club, Watersfield Cricket Club, 1:1 Football and Fitness Performance Coaching and for community events.

Anne, who lives in Clymping, said: “The club has bought a defibrillator. They are delighted with the grant. It will make a big difference because they run several fund raising events throughout the year.

“It’s a really close-knit club, embedded in the local community. Everybody is given an opportunity to play, nobody is turned away and everyone is welcome.”
