Huntingdon Girls Football Club was presented with a new defibrillator after lifesaving awareness was raised during Euro 2020.

Amanda Norton, who runs a Facebook page called Heart On Display, fundraised to purchase the lifesaving equipment and then donates to local organisations who can benefit.

Following Denmark's Christian Eriksen’s collapse at Euro 2020 - it raised awareness of the importance of having access to the equipment.

Amanda said: “I am passionate about getting as many defibrillators as possible into the community.

"Having watched this club gather at Coneygear Park every week I wanted to fundraise and donate a defibrillator to them.”

Stephen Butler, the club’s chairman said: “We can’t thank Amanda enough for all her hard work and fundraising efforts.”
