A nursery in St Albans is delighted after working as the driving force behind the installation of a life-saving defibrillator in Clarence Park.
Colleagues from the Grasshoppers Day Nursery recently visited the site of the new defibrillator at the Cricket Pavilion in Clarence Park after applying for the funding.
The nursery applied for the funding from the Childbase Partnership ‘Charity Support Fund’ and were over the moon to see £2,676 go to installing the defibrillator.
Lauren Ringrose, Grasshoppers Day Nursey charity representative, said: “Clarence Park is very special to us as a nursery, as well as many of our families so it feels incredibly rewarding to play a role in the defibrillator installation, although we hope it will never have to be used.
“This process has also presented many learning opportunities with the children, including developing language by naming body parts, researching how we can keep healthy and visiting the park to see the new addition.”
The new defibrillator can accessed 24/7 by anyone who needs it.
