British Heart Foundation

Teacher trainee Lauren Vint, who is training with MEITT here at The Ramsey Academy, has managed to secure funding from the British Heart Foundation. This is excellent news.

Lauren’s ambitions are to become a Science teacher and she is very enthusiastic and excited about entering the new profession. - Mrs C Starke
In some cases CPR can double the chances of survival from cardiac arrest. It is therefore vital that people have the skills, ability and confidence to step in and help. As part of ‘Restart a Heart’ day in October, The British Heart Foundation advertised the opportunity for schools to apply for a grant to get free CPR training kits and resources.

Having previously owned a first aid training business and having been part of the emergency services, seeing first-hand the difference having these life-saving skills can make, I knew it was something I wanted to get involved in. With the support of Mr James, I applied for a grant which fortunately was accepted. We now have 35 brand new CPR kits ready to train students of Ramsey, giving them the opportunity to become potential life-savers in the community of Halstead and beyond.
