#AceNewsReport B&Q customers are accusing the retail giant of being ‘miserly’ for putting out buckets ‘begging’ customers to cough up cash for store defibrillators – despite the group recording £322million in profits last year: Tom Hawthorn nipped into a B&Q in Cheadle Hulme on December 6 to buy ‘bits and bobs’ and was puzzled to see a collection bucket seeking £1,500 for a defibrillator: The 30-year-old claims it would cost ‘0.14%’ of their owner Kingfisher group’s profits to put a defibrillator in each of their 300 B&Q stores: The dad-of-three, from Wilmslow, slammed the charity drive on social media as ‘unfair’ for asking customers to donate dosh when B&Q ‘could do it for a pittance’ Other shoppers also spotted the buckets and called out the move.

Shopper Sue Ashmall claimed B&Q owner Kingfisher ‘should be ashamed’ for refusing to fund a defibrillator in their Bury store:
Others branded it ‘shocking behaviour from a very wealthy company’ and said they should have defibrillators in every store anyway as a ‘duty’ to their customers and staff.
Tom, who works in property maintenance and landscaping, even called on B&Q’s parent company Kingfisher to ‘up its game’ as its customers are ‘more value to you alive’.
B&Q claims it is fundraising for defibrillators to be used ‘by communities local to our stores nationwide’ and that they will be registered with local ambulance services.
