Showing great heart with a life-saving gift

Published on: June 6, 2013

A recent tragedy in Knott-end-on-Sea sparked Ringtons franchisee Kevin Hadfield to take action. Kevin became a true patron of his local community this month by donating a brand new defibrillator. The first of which goes to a local residential park where one resident recently lost their life.

Disillusioned with his former life as a successful Sales Executive, Kevin launched his franchise in March 2012 and as a result of his hard work and dedication, is already ranked as the second most successful franchisee in the Ringtons network!

When tragedy struck and a resident passed away at Willow Grove Park, Kevin decided to take matters into his own hands. He set about raising money and sourcing the valuable training required for this life- saving equipment.

“We are really isolated so it can take anything up to 20 minutes until rescue arrives in an emergency. Thanks to my success with my business, I’m in a position to be able to really give something back to my community. I have lots of loyal customers and friends at Willow Grove. I want to save people’s lives and this gift could do just that! I’m grateful to Ringtons as they have also supported me in this financially,” explains Kevin.

Kevin secured not one but two defibrillators plus training for the next five years from the North West ambulance service. The first is being donated to the Willow Grove staff. The second unit will be placed in a community hall in the local village for maximum effectiveness and coverage of the surrounding areas.

 “Kevin is a real inspiration, not only a successful franchisee but a beloved and respected member of his local communities. We’re immensely proud of his achievements and his kindness and generosity really could mean the difference between life and death for local residents,” says Chris Clarke, National Franchise Manager for Ringtons.
