A MUM working to save lives in memory of her ten-year-old son has been handed 30 defibrillators by a first aid charity.

Kathleen Orr set up a campaign following the tragic death of her son Jayden in 2017 after he suddenly collapsed at ice skating practice.

Her Jayden's Rainbow charity joined forces with the Tele for a Show Some Heart push to raise over £20,000 to put defibs into every local school.

Now she is widening it out to increase access to the life-saving devices across the community.

Leading first aid champions St Andrews have stepped in to show support by donating defibs which can increase chances of survival by 70 per cent in cases of cardiac arrests.

The national charity is also fully behind Kathleen and her family's work to create a legacy for Jayden.

Kathleen said: "I am overwhelmed by the support from St Andrews.

"I really think we are starting to make difference.

"The donations of these defibrillators will make a huge difference to us."

Kathleen and her husband John have also increased community training on using the devices, taken their campaign to parliament and are now trying to establish Jayden's Law - which would require all new public buildings over a certain size to be fitted with defibs as standard.

They are working with MSP Stuart McMillan to bring major charities and organisations together and increase public access to defibs and boost registration of the machines with the Scottish Ambulance

Kathleen and her family are now trained volunteers with the local first aid group led by Inverclyde Commandant Shaun Conway.

The team patrol major events in Inverclyde and cover Morton's home games at Cappielow.

Volunteer Shaun, 25, from Greenock first got involved with the organisation through the Boys' Brigade.

A cable joiner with Scottish Power, he devotes his spare time to his St Andrews Ambulance duties.

Shaun said: We are delighted to support Kathleen.

"We share the same goals and we are delighted to support her campaign."
