A Weston-super-Mare primary school has had a new defibrillator installed on its wall.
The Friends and Family Association of Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School (FFA) has raised £1,500 to raise money for the life-saving device.
Children, parents and staff from the school, in Ellensborough Park South, raised the money
through cake and ice cream sales and their Christmas and summer fetes.
FFA chairman Louise Kolbeinsen said: “We wanted to raise money for a defibrillator as we were made aware that the nearest one was at the Town Hall.
“We were prompted to raise the money after a medical emergency
in the church next to our school.
“In the future there may be children attending our school who may have medical conditions that might require the use of a defibrillator.
“We hope that anyone in the area will now
know that there is a defibrillator outside our school that is there to help.”
