Long time Dover Athletic fan Nick Cunningham has continued to show his support for the club – and his generosity could save a life.

The local businessman – who owns Nick Cunningham Plumbing and Heating Engineers, based in Sandwich – has brought a defibrillator for use in the community ventures running.

The club already has one defibrillator in the medical facilities at Crabble for use on players or fans on match days, but there was a need for another as Dover Athletic Community Manager Vikki Pawley explains.

“Due to the rise in community projects we have running at the ground now, Saturday and school holiday soccer schools and the walking football, we felt we needed a second defibrillator at the ground,” she said.

“After discussing this need in the sponsors lounge last week, Nick Cunningham has stepped forward and generously bought us one for the community projects.”

As for Nick, he was simply happy to help his beloved club.

He said: “Hopefully, the club will never have to use it, but at least we now have a second one in place should the need arise.”

The new machine will be presented by Nick to the club at Saturday’s National League game against Solihull Moors.
