Kingsfield Golf Club presented Linlithgow First Responders with a cheque for £500.

The cash, which came from the proceeds of the club’s annual Katies Cup, will go towards the installation of a public access defibrillator.

First Responders are community based volunteers who assist at medical emergencies until an ambulance can arrive.

Trained in dealing with serious situations like cardiac arrest and athsma attacks, their interventions can be instrumental in saving lives.

At the club house to receive the cheque were local First Responder Neil MacTavish, and David Booth who is Linlithgow’s co-ordinator and training officer.

Handing over the money was club captain Ian Fowler (second from the left).
