THE locals of a Flintshire pub have 'got their kit off' to support a worthwhile charity and raise money for a defibrillator.

The Hope and Anchor in Buckley is now selling its charity calendars, featuring its regular customers, to help raise money for the British Heart Foundation and a defib to place outside the pub.

They have so far managed to raise £400 for their causes, but need to raise more before they can purchase the defibrillator which could help save lives.

Hope and Anchor's Sophie Hughes said: "The total cost of the defibrillator will be around £1,000. 

"The locals that drink here have all got together and got there kit off for a charity calendar, all in all for a good laugh and for a good cause. We wanted to raise funds to have a defibrillator put outside the pub for access to all residents. 

"There isn’t a defibrillator available 24/7 in the area and there are also elderly peoples bungalows just across the road."

This isn’t the first the Hope and Anchor has done a good deed for its community or for a charity.

It has Macmillan charity buckets available for customers to put their loose change in and last year, during lockdown, staff ran a collection for the local food bank.

The pub recently held a firework display for the community, and on Remembrance Sunday, offered a free drink to all current and ex service people.
