Bendigo Bank Branch Manager presents a defibrillator to VSRG Volunteers.
On Wednesday 30th March Dino Gulizia, Werribee Bendigo Bank Branch Manager, presented a defibrillator to President Joan Broadstock. He was thanked by the volunteers at the State Rose Garden for his contribution to the purchase of the defibrillator.
The volunteers had been looking to purchase a defibrillator unit for some time. They approached the Bendigo Bank who contributed $1800 towards this life-saving piece of equipment. Some training sessions have been held on its use, but the volunteers hope that this piece of equipment never needs to be used.

A big thank you to the members of the Werribee Garden Club for their much appreciated support.
