A pre-school has been able to buy life-saving first aid equipment after fundraising more than £2,000 thanks to overwhelming support from the community.
Little Robins Pre-School in Hatfield Road, St Albans held a series of events including a raffle, cake sale, a sponsored run in the playground and even a pirates week.
Parents got behind the campaign, with one running the London Marathon in under four hours. Hertfordshire Police also made a donation.
The money raised enabled them to buy two new defibrillators, which help deliver an electric shock to the heart in the event of someone having a cardiac arrest.
Carrie Smith, nursery manager, said: “We don’t do things by halves at Little Robins, so set about raising enough money to have one defibrillator upstairs in the building and one downstairs.
“We have been overwhelmed with the support from our pre-schoolers, their parents and the community to help us smash our target.”
