A bereaved charity campaigner has donated a life-saving defibrillator to a Welwyn Garden City school.

Mark Seth, whose late wife Laura Radcliffe-Seth died suddenly at the age of 37 two years ago, donated a defibrillator to Stanborough School, in Lemsford Lane, on behalf of charity SADS UK.

Mr Seth told the WHT: “It is a great privilege to donate to Stanborough and for Stanborough to accept as Laura’s sons Tom and Freddie were scholars here recently and I know for sure Laura would be so happy and proud just like myself to help others in need if required in such emergency of cardiac problems.

“I hope it will give parents some sort of assurance, knowing a defibrillator is situated within the school of there loved ones.”

Training in the use of the new medical kit took place last Wednesday.

The defibrillator is life-saving equipment, which works to restore heart rhythm if a 
person goes into 
cardiac arrest.
