Community Comes Together to Save Lives
on: February 23, 2021, 12:01

Local community group Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association, along with City Councillor Chandra Kanneganti who is also a local G.P. come together to help save lives.

Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (SAGE) applied for over £900 from Councillor Chandra Kanneganti’s Ward Budget to purchase a much needed defibrillator to be sited at the Londis Supermarket & Post Office in Goldenhill.

The residents association topped up the much needed purchase by donating £50 out of its funds, and with the councillor contributing to such a good cause, it would be fitting he presented the lifesaving equipment to Kartheepan Sriramamoorthy “Sri” who is the manager of Londis.

Saving lives at this time of the COVID-19 epidemic is important to all of us, and it is believed that even if having a defibrillator located in the village saves one life then it will have been money well spent.

Sri on accepting the defibrillator into his Supermarket/Post Office welcomed having the equipment on site, saying he always supports the local community wherever he can, and having lifesaving apparatus on site; could mean the difference between someone’s life and death.

Chandra Kanneganti says that to have a defibrillator in a busy village like Goldenhill is invaluable to the local community. The councillor went onto say that having this piece of equipment to save lives is so easy to use, and he is looking to provide lifesaving training later in the year for local residents to attend an event.
