A CHEQUE for £15,000 was handed to the London Hearts Charity at the Ealing Masonic Centre open day.

It will enable the charity to place even more defibrillators across London, within easy access of the public. The money was raised by London Freemasons.

London Hearts are the leading heart charity in London for placing defibrillators in communities and delivering CPR and defibrillator training.

London Freemasons also have an appeal to raise £2.5m to buy two high-rise aerial rescue lifts for the London Fire Brigade.
