Rotary Club of South Holland buy defibrillator for Spalding special school
Representatives from The Rotary Club of South Holland visited The Priory School in Spalding to hand over a new defibrillator.
The Priory School supports pupils who have a range of needs including moderate Learning Difficulties, Autism, SEMH and communication issues.
The school has always had use of a defibrillator stationed next door to them at Spalding Academy, however, it was suggested by the emergency services to have a defibrillator on site.
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.”
