Life saving equipment installed in memory of a parent

Brockhampton Primary School in Bromyard has installed a new defibrillator in memory of a parent who passed away earlier this year.

The school which has 199 pupils has installed the defibrillator on the black door to the left of the main entrance for the benefit of the wider community in Bromyard.

The defibrillator was donated by the West Midlands Ambulance Service and has been supported by Keepmoat Homes, a leading UK home builder which paid for the electrical installation and arranged the refurbishment of the doors and installation of a commemorative plaque.

Matthew Mander, Head Teacher at Brockhampton said:

“We are incredibly grateful to Simon Halling from West Midlands Ambulance and Keepmoat Homes for their support in enabling us to site the defibrillator in our grounds. Obviously, we all hope there is never call to use it however, it is there now for our local community or visitors to the Downs should the need ever arise.”

Ben Cook, Regional Managing Director of Keepmoat Homes in the South West, said:

“We’re delighted that we were able to support Brockhampton Primary School with the installation of this defibrillator. Keepmoat Homes prides itself on supporting the communities in which we work and we understand the life saving value that this equipment could have to not just pupils, teachers and visitors to the school but also members of the wider community.”
