Life-saving defibrillator installed on site
We have recently installed a potentially life-saving defibrillator on our 3G football pitch.
The equipment was kindly donated on behalf of Winvic by Nick Lakin (project manager), Derren McCrum (site manager) and Trevor Swailes (HSEQ manager), who are currently overseeing the construction on Warth Park, Raunds.
Available for emergency use at all times, the defibrillator is located next to the school’s artificial football pitch, which sees regular use from students and members of the local community. In the event that somebody goes into cardiac arrest, the equipment can be used to treat the casualty whilst waiting for an ambulance to arrive.
Tom Hatton, Sports Centre manager, commented “With the community at the heart of what we offer here at Manor, my thanks go to Winvic for their generous donation of this potentially life-saving equipment. We have a range of senior and junior teams that use the 3G pitch throughout the week and with our new hockey, netball and tennis pitch in development for 2019, it is reassuring that provisions are there to maintain the safety of our visitors while they improve their health and wellbeing with us. On behalf of Manor Sports and Leisure, Manor School and its users, thank you.”
Winvic’s HSEQ manager Trevor Swailes, also a former student of the school and local resident, commented “Winvic strives to benefit the communities in and around our developments, and we are always looking to improve these areas for the people who live there. As a regular user of the sports facilities at Manor School, I am especially pleased to be able to donate a defibrillator to the site.”
