A CHOCOLATE entrepreneur has backed Port Glasgow mum's bid to change the law in memory of her son.

Brian Dick's New Chocolate Company has become the first business in the town's Kelburn Industrial Estate to invest in a lifesaving defibrillator.

It comes as campaigner Kathleen Orr pushes for more public access to defibs following the tragic death of her ten-year-old son Jayden.

She has also been to the Scottish Parliament to fight for Jayden's Law - which would mean all large new buildings have to install such a device as standard.

Brian says he is keen to get behind Kathleen's fight.

He said: "I think that if you can't afford the £1,000 to put a defib in and invest in your staff, then you shouldn't be in business.

"It is so important to have a defibrillator on site in the workplace.

"It can saves lives.

"Our workers are our biggest assets.

"Everyone should be putting in a defibrillator in workplaces."

Kathleen has raised money to put the machines into schools and public places and has teamed up with St Andrew's and the Scottish Ambulance Service.

In November last year she took her law-change campaign to the public petitions committee along with local MSP Stuart McMillan.

Kathleen, her husband John, daughter Kerri Lynn and son Declan set up a charity in Jayden's name after he collapsed and died while at ice-skating practice in August 2017.

Kathleen said: "Kelburn Industrial Estate is an ideal place to have a defib because it is so close to the A8.

"There are large gaps in Inverclyde where they are no defibrillators nearby and we want to change that.

"But it is also so important to register your defib with the Scottish Ambulance Service.

"If not, then no one will know it is there in an emergency."
