NYTimber helps to fund defibrillator at school for Ripon community

Timber importers and merchants NYTimber and construction company Walter Thompson have joined forces to help fund a defibrillator for Holy Trinity Infant School and the Ripon community.

The businesses, which both operate throughout North Yorkshire, have donated £500 to buy a defibrillator, which will be installed at the school to be used by the public in case of emergency.

The device is potentially lifesaving for someone suffering a cardiac arrest, and can be accessed 24-hours-a-day by entering a code on its keypad, which can be obtained by calling 999.

Chris Stones, branch manager at NYTimber in Ripon, said: “I hope the defibrillator is never required, but it is important that the school and local people do have access to one just in case. My team and I will be raising awareness of the device and its location with our customers, and would encourage other to do so too.”
