Staff at Albert Pye Primary and Ravensmere Infant School have taken part in a sponsored walk to raise money for defibrillators.
The walk was planned after staff members from the schools, which are allied by the Albert Pye and Ravensmere Federation, recently updated their first aid training. They subsequently decided that a defibrillator should be purchased for each school.
On Sunday, June 11, staff and friends walked for 10 miles around Walberswick and Southwold.
So far the effort has raised £666, which will go directly towards the cost of the machines.
In 2014, the government’s Department for Education announced that all schools should consider purchasing a defibrillator as part of their first aid kit.
