We were very proud today to welcome Mark King from the Oliver King Foundation to deliver our community defibrillator and provide training to members of staff.
The Oliver King Foundation are determined to save as many young lives as possible. Their aim is to ensure that no other family has to suffer a similar loss to the family of Oliver King.
The Foundation was set up in January 2012 following the tragic death of 12-year-old Oliver King. Oliver died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, a hidden heart condition which kills 12 young people every week. Oliver attended King David High School in Liverpool and suffered a cardiac arrest whilst taking part in a swimming race. It is estimated that 270 children die every year.
We would like to thank Mark and Chris for visiting our school, providing a defibrillator and providing our staff with the training to use it.
