Fast access to an AED (Defibrillator) is vital in the event of someone having a cardiac arrest. Did you know that each minute of delay after a cardiac arrest, reduces the patients chance of survival by 10%! Every second really does count… 

Over recent months there has been growing demand from the community for use of our school based AED's. In an effort to increase access and reduce any delay in application we are looking to fundraise and provide AED's in secure cases on the outside of the building ensuring no delay if needed in the community. 

Ideally we are looking to raise £2000 to have one installed at the front and rear of the school so they are close to hand for any emergency, including local sports groups using our fields.
