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.
