Fife Renewables Innovation Centre raised the cash to buy lifesaving equipment for the local community.

“We launched the defibrillator with a cake sale, which raised 75 per cent of the money needed to maintain the unit over the next year."

Andrew Goulder, lead officer business property, economic development at Fife Council, said: “To have a defibrillator for local businesses and the local community will enable many more lives to be saved.

"Thank you to the businesses at FRIC for all they have done to achieve this.”
