Stanway School installs lifesaving defibrillator on site
A school has become the first secondary school in the Colchester area to install a life-saving defibrillator.
Following a successful fundraising campaign, more than £1,600 has been raised to have the device installed at the Stanway School.
Available for emergency use at all times, the defibrillator will be housed in a cabinet, on the outside wall of the school.
Stanway School head Jonathan Bland said: “The Stanway School has always aimed to be a hub of the community and this step to be the first Colchester secondary school to provide a public access defibrillator demonstrates this perfectly.
