The Basildon Academies

Heartsafe School

We are grateful to have received a donation of an AED (automated external defibrillator) in memory of Rachael Kiely-Cohen.

Rachael, who attended the school, very sadly passed away aged 18 of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome. 

Since her passing, mum Maxine has been fundraising for SADS UK enabling organisations in the local community to receive crucial lifesaving Defibs.

Included within this generous donation, staff from the Academies received training from Meditrain.

“A fantastic opportunity to learn how such a critical piece of kit can be used, let’s hope we never have to” Mrs Peake – Careers Learning Co-ordinator.
