Tarporley High School, which has just been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted, has raised enough money for a defibrillator to be installed in the school thanks to many hours of fundraising and to a final donation from Tarporley First Responders.
The funding campaign initially began with a number of students from the school council who held cake sales, tuck shops and stalls at parents' evenings in a bid to raise the funds needed. Led by Alison Wade, a teacher at the school, the students also approached local businesses who were keen to contribute to the cause (Piste, Caran D'ache and Wright Manley) in order to raise the full amount needed.

Thankfully, the final funding came from Tarporley First Responders, a group of volunteers who operate on an on-call basis to attend serious incidents until an ambulance arrives and who carry defibrillators, oxygen and first aid kits. They are crucial in situations such as cardiac arrests where time can mean the difference between life and death.

 

From Left to Right: Zara Whyke, Alison Wade, Noah Aldous, Ben Gittins, Sam Spruce, Jeremy Mills (Tarporley First Responder), Jenn Armitage (Tarporley First Responder).

Jenn Armitage and Jeremy Mills, both First Responders, presented Alison Wade and the students, with a cheque for £150 to cover the final cost of the defibrillator. Jenn Armitage said "It's brilliant that the school can finally have such an important piece of equipment. With so many young people and adults under one roof, it's vital that they have access to this potentially life-saving tool."
The defibrillator will be placed in the school's reception area in close proximity to three members of support staff who have since attended specialist training on how to use the equipment.
Alison Wade said "I would like to thank the students for all their hard work in making this happen and of course the local businesses and Tarporley First Responders for their generous donations."
As part of the scheme North West Ambulance Service has provided two defibrillators for Tarporley village, which are already based at The Swan Hotel and the Co-operative.

Could I remind villagers to stick to the footpaths when walking through the fields. There are a great many people using the footpaths at the moment as you can imagine, but many of them are wandering off the footpaths across fields and even into fields of crops which have no footpaths at all. Villagers should always make sure that they are certain that they know where the footpath runs before...
