THE Little Lot Day Nursery has donated a much-needed defibrillator to Warrington Street Pastors who help look after vulnerable people having nights out in Warrington town centre at weekends.
Mrs Bev Owen the Managing Director of The Little Lot Nursery based in the Stockton Heath Primary School building, heard that Warrington Street Pastors urgently needed a defibrillator.
The Nursery, a not for profit charitable organisation, with the agreement of their Board of Trustees, decided to donate a defibrillator to Warrington Street Pastors, and to fund the cost of batteries for the next three years.
Bev said that the Board were delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile organisation.
The nursery takes children from the age of two to four years and involves all the pupils in local and national community projects.
John Britton, chair of trustees of Warrington Street Pastors, thanked Little Lot Nursery for their generosity saying that on a number of occasions over the last three years a defibrillator had been needed.
The defibrillator will be installed in Street Pastors base ‘Help on the Corner’ on the corner of Bridge Street and Academy Way and will be available not only to Street Pastors but the Police in an emergency.
