The school are extremely grateful to receive a defibrillator from the Connor Saunders Foundation. Mrs Saunders, Connors’s mum, presented the defibrilator to the staff and children in Seahorse Class. Below is a letter from Mrs Saunders and more information about ‘The Connor Saunders Foundation.’
“I am delighted that Palatine Primary School have been presented with a Defibrillator thanks to my son Connor’s foundation. It was an honour to spend time in your school to help make it heart safe and we would like to thank you all; staff, governors and children for making us feel so welcome. Special thanks to all staff that helped in making this possible for your school. We hope you never have to use it but should you need to in an emergency it is there to help save a life. Love and Blessings .
Mrs Saunders. Connor’s extremely proud Mum x”
The Connor Saunders Foundation
On April 14th 2012 our son Connor Saunders’ life was taken after he was assaulted in Rottingdean Brighton. He was just 19 years of age. Connor loved life and life loved Connor, he made our world a better place.
We as Connor’s Family have set up a charity to keep his memory and legacy alive! The Connor Saunders Foundation (Registered Charity No. 1148677) supports three wonderful causes that are close to Connor’s heart:
Supplying football clubs and schools locally with Defibrillators and the required training;
Providing professional football coaching in schools for children with disabilities and learning
Raising Awareness for Organ Donation
Connor made the selfless decision at the tender age of 16 to become an Organ Donor and because of that he saved 5 lives and helped enhance the life of a 10 month old baby too. Connor was a wonderful kind gentle person who was loved by everyone – he was one of a kind – the best kind.
Please check out Connor’s website wwwconnors5.com for more info, upcoming fundraising events and how you can help to support his foundation.
We are so unbelievably proud that your school is now heart safe thanks to our Connor’s foundation.
Kind regards The Saunders Family, 5 is Alive
