A new defibrillator has been donated to the town by the Rotary Club of Oban, following an approach from Ganavan Sands Parkrun, who organise a weekly 5km jog starting at Ganavan Sands at 9.30am on a Saturday.

To access the facility, a 999 telephone call will provide the code for opening the box, and Oban Rotary along with Ganavan Sands Parkrun, intends to advertise the availability of the facility for locals and visitors. The defibrillator and a dedication plaque were installed free of charge by Oban Electrical Services and CGL (Oban).

Running alongside this donation, to mark the opening of the new Dove Centre in Stevenson Street by Oban Hospice, Oban Rotary gifted the centre a defibrillator. Oban Rotary, which earlier contributed to the funding of a therapeutic chair for Oban Hospice, said it was ‘pleased to be associated with this most worthwhile local initiative’.
