A synagogue in Radlett now has two defibrillators thanks to a donation from a local bridge group.

Radlett and Bushey Reform synagogue was given £700 from the U3A Bridge Group and purchased the defibrillators through a scheme set up by the Magen David Adom, the Israeli medical emergency service.

A defibrillator is a machine that delivers an electric shock to restart the heart when someone is having a cardiac arrest.

About 60,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the UK every year.

Madeleine Turner at the synagogue said: "Whilst we hope never to need to use these particular gifts, we are very grateful to the bridge group for them."

The U3A Beginners Bridge is one of a number of bridge groups that meets at the synagogue.
