Estate agent Glynn shows great heart
A Hertfordshire primary school now has the reassurance of a heart defibrillator on its premises – and it’s not the first time an organisation in the county has been donated life-saving equipment by Wayne’s Fund, a charity set up by one of our estate agents.
St Helen’s Church of England Primary School
in Wheathampstead recently became the 46th recipient of a defibrillator donated by the charity, set up by the Harrison Murray Estate Agency
(part of The Nottingham) St Albans office manager Glynn Pope in 2005 - the year his brother Wayne tragically died, aged just 30, from cardiac condition Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome.
Other public access buildings that have benefitted from state-of-the-art defibs – and training as to how to use them – at £2,000 a time over the last decade include many more schools, a police station and an ice rink.
Glynn said: “I was delighted to visit St Helen’s Primary School to present the defibrillator, which takes the number we have donated across Hertfordshire to 46.
“Over the last decade they have been used to help save many lives. We hope St Helen’s never have to use theirs but the teachers, parents and pupils have the reassurance that it is there should they ever need it.”
