Fundraising for a defibrillator

Fundraising is underway at a Loughton school to help provide a piece of equipment the school never wants to use.

Emergency First Aid Ltd is working with Thomas Willingale School and Nursery in The Broadway to raise £1,000 for a defibrillator.

Danny Hyde, Emergency First Aid Ltd director and lead instructor, hopes to eventually raise sufficient money to provide the equipment for other schools that it works with in the area. 

The company will provide free training once the defibrillator has been purchased.

Danny said: "Our staff, shareholders and family will be taking on various challenges in the next few years to achieve this. 

A 100km run and a gruelling hike up Pen Y Fan are already planned along with a triathlon in September.

Danny said: "Sadly 270 children die in the UK every year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school.

"If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within three to five minutes of cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from six per cent to 74 per cent which is incredible.

"A full defibrillator package costs roughly £1,000 so we have a massive challenge."

Staff at Thomas Willingale have already received training .They are an amazing school who really believe in First Aid for all."

Head Teacher Teresa Phillips said: "We are delighted to be given the opportunity to have a defibrillator based at our school, most of us are already trained on the use of one as we are highly trained in First Aid thanks to Emergency First Aid Limited. 

“This potentially life-saving equipment will be available not only for our school community to use, but also the local community too."
