Portadown Youth’s fundraising drive to purchase a set of defibrillators will include a sponsored walk from Shamrock Park on Sunday, September 27.

Widespread support from Portadown Youth players, coaching staff, officials, family members and sponsors is expected for the event.

Members of the business community have already provided impressive financial aid towards the project.

The walk is considered the latest move, alongside existing efforts.

“This is a major project but one which everyone agrees is so important,” said Portadown Youth chairman Jeff Kerr. “We have over 350 boys on the books and the ultimate goal is to purchase a defibrillator for every single team.

“It is our main goal.”
