A dentist completed a gruelling triathlon to raise funds for a life-saving defibrillator for Melton Market.
Dr Robin Bryant, lead dentist at Oasis Dental Care Melton Mowbray, took on his fundraising challenge after an incident at the market whereby a farmer collapsed and they had to race to the dental practice to borrow their defibrillator.
Generous farmers as well as Dr Bryant’s kind patients were among those who sponsored him. The £1,050 total included £740 raised by the local farmers who attend the cattle market and £150 donated by Bentons Estate Agents.
Melton Market manager Tim Webster thanked Dr Bryant and the practice for helping to buy the automated external defibrillator (AED) and all the farmers, dental patients and others who kindly made donations.
