A Balornock butcher has appealed for a defibrillator to be returned after it was accessed twice in the early hours of Saturday morning. 

The device was placed outside the Wallacewell Road shop, Shaw the Butcher, after a fundraiser was launched by butcher Donnie Shaw. 

With the help of the local community, enough money was raised to set-up the life-saving device.

The store appealed on Facebook for the device to be returned stating in a post "please return it to the shop, it could save a life". 

It was accessed once on the Saturday by a young woman who returned it, but a man in his thirties who accessed it later that morning did not return it. 

The money for the defibrillator was raised in 2018, through a raffle, bonus ball and charity single recorded by Donnie himself which we sold in-store.

It was part of a nationwide initiative that encourages Scottish butchers to raise money for community defibrillators.

Butcher's at the Heart of the Community is supported by Save a Life Scotland and Scottish Craft Butchers. 

The initiative was started by butcher Pamela Hunter from Hunters of Kinross.
