The Priory School needed to raise £850 to purchase their own defibrillator and The Rotary Club of South Holland stepped in to help. They decided to provide all the money so that the new machine could be put into place as soon as possible.

President Jon Martin and former president David Spenceley visited the school to officially hand over the new defibrillator.

Priory School executive head Daran Bland said: “We are incredibly thankful to The Rotary Club of South Holland. Having a defibrillator on site could literally be a lifesaver.”
