A 12-year-old schoolgirl’s campaign to save lives in her community and beyond is going from strength to strength after yet another defibrillator has been installed in a local school.

Cody’s Defibrillator Campaign raises funds to install the life-saving machines in places such as schools,

sports clubs, youth groups and community centres, the latest being at Blackgates Primary School in Tingley.

Cody said: “The campaign is going quite well because I now feel that I am raising a lot of awareness about defibrillators.

“ I now get people messaging me asking if I could give them fundraising ideas so they can get one for their children’s schools, churches etc.

“I got in touch with Blackgates and offered to donate one ot them.

“ I am also donating one to East Ardsley Primary School as the teachers there have already had training on how to use one.”
