In a commendable display of community support and commitment to safety, local packaging company, Packed Up, has donated a defibrillator to New Machar Primary School.

This invaluable contribution will enhance the safety measures at the school and provide peace of mind to students, staff, and parents alike. The idea for the donation came from the company's Director, who read an article about a campaign to get defibrillators in schools. Realising the importance of having such a device on the school grounds, Packed Up decided to donate one.

Packed Up Director, Sam Wright, expressed her enthusiasm about the donation, stating, "We believe in investing in our community. Donating a defibrillator to New Machar Primary School is a small step towards a safer future."

The defibrillator will be easily accessible to the school's staff, ensuring a quick response in case of a medical emergency. Its presence will significantly increase the chances of survival for anyone suffering from sudden cardiac arrest within the premises of the school. The defibrillator will not only be an essential asset in case of emergencies within the school grounds but will also serve as a resource for the broader community during after-school activities. Prompt access to this life-saving device can potentially save lives and provide a safer environment for everyone in and around the school premises.

This act of generosity serves as a reminder of the importance of corporate social responsibility and how companies can positively impact their local communities. Packed Up has set an excellent example for other local businesses to follow, demonstrating that even small gestures can have a significant impact on the lives of people in the community.
