The Stephen Carey fund have installed their 3rd public access defibrillator in to the North Northumberland area. The latest unit has been sited at Hipsburn County First School, located close to the coastal village of Alnmouth and adjacent to the A1068 coast road.
The defibrillator is to be unveiled to the public at 7:00pm on Monday 18th November at Hipsburn First School, near Alnmouth. The evening will see The Stephen Carey Fund joined by the North East Ambulance service who will provide an awareness session to inform the local community about this new life saving device and also demonstrating life saving skills.
The installation of this device and this location is particularly poignant for those involved with The Stephen Carey Fund as it covers not only the pitch that he played so much football for the village but it is near his home and family.
We are delighted that the school, it’s governors and Northumberland County Council gave consent for the unit and more so that we were able to secure a device that not only is designed for use on adults but also for young children.
This is an open event and the public are more than welcome, and in fact encouraged, to attend – life saving skills are something we all need to learn and refresh ourselves with.
