KIND-HEARTED bowlers gave life-savers in Bolton a boost.

The Kearsley Park Veteran Bowls Club joined forces with the Bolton Wanderers’ Community Trust to buy a defibrillator.

The piece of equipment was officially handed over with the help of North West Ambulance paramedic Steve Nicholls and the mayor and mayoress of Bolton, Cllr Colin and Dee Shaw.

Last year, The Bolton News launched the Every School Leaver a Lifesaver campaign, by joining forces with Bolton West MP Julie Hilling to promote the teaching of emergency lifesaving skills.

Ms Hilling was inspired to start her campaign after former Bolton Wanderers footballer collapsed on the pitch during an FA Cup match at Spurs and was resuscitated by medical staff after his heart stopped beating.
