A life-saving piece of equipment is now in place at a Haverhill primary school.

A defibrillator has been installed at Place Farm Academy in Camps Road following its donation by AEDdonate – a national network which raises awareness of the importance of the life-saving equipment around the country.

A dozen staff members have currently been trained to use the new defibrillator, which is in the school’s medical room, close to the main reception area.

Jane Sendall, headteacher at Place Farm Primary Academy said: “It is brilliant that a defibrillator has been donated to the school.

“Not only will this potentially benefit staff and pupils, but also people visiting Place Farm Primary Academy, the new residents of the retirement homes being built close by and the surrounding area.”

AEDdonate installs defibrillators into schools, workplaces, sports halls and other places around the UK.
