Hard working pupils in Watt House at Linlithgow Academy have jump started First Responders’ funds.

The youngsters and staff raised £1099.94 over the course of the year from various fundraisers and dress down days, and the money will go towards buying defibrillators that will be placed in the community for use by the public.

Group coordinator David Booth said: “The initiative of funding and sourcing Public Access Defibrillators began with a fundraising event at Low Port Centre. This initiative was given a huge boost by the money raised by Watt House.

“This is a fantastic scheme which will greatly benefit the local community. Any interested parties should sign up for Heart Start training to receive vital life saving skills.”
