Defibrillator training at Holyrood Academy in Chard

First published in Somerset

A WOMAN whose son has a rare hearing defect has helped organise lifesaving equipment and training courses across South Somerset.

Linda Kellaway got involved with Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome UK in its Big Shock campaign because of her son, Charlie.

She has raised enough money to fund five defibrillators with two based at Tatworth School and Holyrood Academy in Chard.

Defibrillator training took place at Holyrood last week.

The machine can give people suffering a cardiac arrest a 50% chance of survival, compared to just 5% by using CPR.
