Edinburgh Butcher Installs Public Access Defibrillator

In collaboration with St John Scotland, another Scottish Craft Butcher has joined the Butchers at the Heart of the Community initiative! Saunderson’s Butchers of Tollcross, Edinburgh have unveiled their brand new defib, which is available to the public 24 hours a day.
