A primary school has installed a life-saving piece of equipment.

Deeping St James Primary School has fitted a defibrillator with the help of Vistry Midlands, which contributed £500.

The rest of the funds were raised through a bake sale held by pupils and it has been installed inside the school’s reception area.

Becky Barrett, chairperson of the school’s parent-teacher association, said: “We’ve been wanting to purchase a defibrillator for a long time, as they can be quite literally lifesaving in the unfortunate event of an emergency.

“We were struggling financially to find the budget, so we decided to reach out to Vistry as they’ve previously supported us.”

Weronika Maslak, sales manager at Springfields, said: “We are committed to establishing and building relationships with local schools in the areas in which we build.”

Defibrillators deliver a dose of electrical energy to the body to restore a regular heartbeat in the event of a cardiac arrest, and contain simple instructions that mean untrained members of the public can use them.
