First published in News by

AN anonymous donor has given funding to provide Bransgore Primary School with its own life-saving defibrillator.

The donor gave the money to the local Community First Responder group with a specific request that they provide the defibrillator for the school.

Bransgore Responder Group co-ordinator Mike Jukes said: “When the donor approached us and offered to pay for the defibrillator we were very happy to help make it happen.

“We know a defibrillator being available promptly in cases of cardiac arrest can help save a life.

“The current campaign to see defibrillators in schools is one we wholeheartedly support and promote locally.”

Brasgore headteacher Paul Brown said: “This is such a considerate and valuable gift.

“This equipment means that our school, and the village in general, is a safer place to be.

“On behalf of the whole school and governing body I should like to thank our donor for such a wonderful contribution to our school community.

“It could make a life-saving difference in the future.”

The defibrillator was handed over to the school during a special assembly.

The Community Responders will help staff become familiar with the defibrillator, along with providing the opportunity to practice their CPR skills.
