GENEROUS DONATION: Heart saving Watford charity receives large donation from Stanmore school

 Published on: 5th March 2020   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

A school in Stanmore fundraised for a heart saving Watford charity after they installed a defibrillator on their premises.

Aylward Primary School raised £550 for Watford-based Wayne’s Fund Charity, which donates heart saving equipment to schools throughout the country. 

John Pope started Wayne’s Fund Charity in 2006 after his son, Wayne, suddenly died.

He visited Aylward last October to discuss the charity and the school’s since been fundraising to give back. 

Aylward was the 73rd school to receive the heart saving equipment from the charity, which the staff are training on how to use.

Following from this, the school council arranged a fundraiser, ‘Crazy Hair’ day, and managed to raise £550.

John returned to the school recently to receive the donation. 

He said: “It is our belief that all schools should have access to a defibrillator. It was our pleasure to donate one to Aylward Primary School and thank them for their fund raising and fantastic donation to ‘Wayne’s Fund’. As a non-profit organisation this donation will allow us to continue our work, donating defibrillators to schools.”
