Lifesaving legacy of family's Clip Up for Conor campaign

A LIFESAVING device has been installed at Chester Park Junior School after a fundraising campaign set up in memory of a Fishponds teenager who died in a moped accident.

The defibrillator was unveiled on January 23 by the family of Conor Hall who died in 2011 after his moped crashed in Charlton Road, Kingswood. 

The 16-year-old was taken to Frenchay Hospital and put on a life support machine but Conor sadly died five days later.

It was discovered that the former Downend School student hadn't clipped up the strap of his motorcycle helmet - and that if he had fastened it, it may have saved his life.

Following his death, his family launched Clip Up For Conor, an organisation which fundraises for good causes and highlights the importance of making sure helmets are both worn and fastened.

The campaign, driven by Conor's mum Arline, sister Kayleigh, and brothers Lee
