A Tayside nurse has pledged to donate money to fix or replace a community defibrillator damaged by vandals.
Heather Kelly, from Kirriemuir, is a nurse at Ninewells Hospital.
She has vowed that some of the money she raises at an already planned fundraising event will be used for the defibrillator.
She said: “The event is to help fund my trip to The Mercy Ship in Cameroon next March. However, I have made a decision that half of what I make will be put to help fix or replace our defibrillator — but it needs the community to help me do this.”
The community council-purchased defibrillator in Reform Street was vandalised at some point over the weekend.
It is expected that repairs will cost about £400.
Heather said: “The community council gets a set budget and this is more than third of it.
“This is money that could be spent on another project to help improve the environment of our town.”
