Bordon Infant School secures donations for life-saving defibrillator
Bordon Infant School has raised donations to purchase a life-saving defibrillator, making the difference between life and death for Bordon’s youngest residents.
The defibrillator will be installed at the school. It can be used without training, as the defibrillator gives voice instructions until the ambulance arrives, making it ideal for both teachers and students.
Bordon Infant School teachers and administrators Olivia Wong, Claire Lockyer, and Jenny Ibbs participated in the Great South Run, in order to raise donations for the defibrillator and fundraised more than £700. WBRC matched this total, enabling the purchase of the £1,500 defibrillator.
James Child, Project Lead, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, said:
WBRC was delighted to match the donations made to fund the defibrillator. Having the appropriate safety equipment is extremely important, especially in an educational setting.
