Today we were very proud to be able to donate a defibrillator to Thackley Cricket Club.
We had a huge 'Save A Heart' fundraising day earlier in the year with the aim of raising enough money to buy a defibrillator for our school. We were astounded by the amount of support we received from our children, their families and the local community which meant we were able to raise enough money for TWO defibrillators!
We were delighted to donate the second one to our local cricket club, meaning that we now have TWO defibrillators in Thackley as a result of the wonderful support from our school community!
Dave Jones from the ambulance service came to help us present the defibrillator to Alan Cuff, Treasurer of Thackley Cricket Club.
