An estate agent fundraising in memory of his brother who died from a cardiac condition has donated his 46th heart defibrillator.
Glynn Pope, who established Wayne’s Fund in 2005 after losing his brother at the age of 30 to Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, recently handed over the life-saving equipment to St Helen’s Primary School in Wheathampstead.
The school joins a long list of public access buildings to receive the state-of-the-art device including a police station, an ice rink and several other schools.
Glynn, who is office manager of Harrison Murray Estate Agency in St Albans, 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 now.
“Over the last decade they have been used to help save many lives.

“We hope St Helen’s never have to use theirs but teachers, parents and pupils have the reassurance that it is there should they need it.”
