Many congratulations to estate agent Glynn Pope who has presented yet another defibrillator in his quest to save lives.
Pope, who is manager at the St Albans branch of Harrison Murray in Hertfordshire, founded Wayne’s Fund in 2005 in memory of his brother Wayne who died at 30 from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome.
Since then, an incredible 45 defibrillators have been presented to public places, including – so far – schools, a police station and an ice rink.
The latest recipient was the Orchard primary school in Watford.
Headmaster Paul Sutton said: “The work Glynn is doing in memory of his brother Wayne is truly amazing. We recognise how valuable the defibrillator will be not only to our school but also our local community.
“We will of course ensure we make a donation to Wayne’s Fund to support another school or organisation in the future.”
Glynn said that over the past ten years, donated defibrillators have been used to help save many lives but that he hoped the Orchard school would never have to use theirs.
Each defibrillator costs £2,000.
