East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) has stepped in to loan a defibrillator to replace one missing from Stamford's Recreation Ground.
Dannii Vincent of Dosh4Defibs, which has installed five defibrillators in the town during a three-year campaign, says it will remain in place until a new one is purchased.
She told Stamford Nub News an insurance claim had been submitted for a replacement.
"In the meantime, I'm extremely grateful to EMAS which has offered to loan one until a new one can be bought," she added.
Dannii does not yet have a date for the installation of the loaned defibrillator, but hopes it will be in the near future.
The Recreation Ground defibrillator was reported stolen to police last week and Dannii set up an online fundraising page asking for contributions towards a replacement.
However, thanks to EMAS' generosity, Dannii now says money already in the fund, and any future donations, will go towards buying more defibrillators or replacing used equipment in existing ones.
