Boosting customer safety at Uttoxeter Waitrose

5th June 2024
Uttoxeter Waitrose

We're proud to announce the installation of a new defibrillator at Waitrose in Uttoxeter. This vital piece of equipment can make a significant difference in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest and marks the twelfth defibrillator we’ve funded as part of our pledge to install 100 AED devices over four years. 

This defibrillator will ensure that any customers and staff at Waitrose, or members of the nearby community, have immediate access to potentially life-saving equipment. 

Dan Nutt, Branch Manager of our Uttoxeter branch, said: 

“It’s fantastic to see and also be a part of Leek supporting installations of local defibrillators, especially in the Uttoxeter area again. This is a massive commitment from the Society and one the town should be proud of. I have personally seen an AED unit be used to save someone’s life and can’t stress the importance of having these machines ready and available.” 

Our Uttoxeter branch is located on Market Place, a short walk from the recently installed AED unit. We’re delighted to have taken this proactive step towards protecting the Uttoxeter community and those visiting Waitrose. 

Mark Thorley, Partner & Compliance Manager from Waitrose, said: 

“We’re very grateful for this invaluable device that will make such a big difference. We’re delighted that Leek Building Society have funded this project for a very well needed replacement in the area, as this will help to save lives locally - something of which we’re very proud to be a part of within our community.”
