The Bishop of Doncaster, Peter Burrows, will be donating a range of medical equipment to the Doncaster Knights on behalf of the Doncaster Impaired Sight Campaign Group (DISCG), at Doncaster Minster on Wednesday.
Bishop Burrows, who is Patron of the DISCG, will be donating three items to the rugby club, a defibrillator, resuscitation kit and Peacemaker Entonox gas for pain relief.
Bishop Burrows said today: “As patron, I am very pleased to be supporting the DISCG and even more so that the equipment being donated will hopefully be used to save many lives.”
Dave Beasley, Chairman of the DISCG, said: “Sadly all too often we hear of sportsmen and women in their prime, as well as spectators, losing their lives at events because the right equipment wasn’t available.”
He added: “The DISCG had the right equipment available and we hope it never is needed, but if needed it saves lives.”
