Sarah Dormor, HeartSWell Volunteer and Senior Resuscitation Officer at University Hospitals Plymouth, kindly ventured out in the pouring rain on a wet Monday evening and trained a group of 24 willing participants in Liverton.

Emma Cox from The Star Inn was really pleased with the number of people who took part saying "It was pretty much the perfect number as everyone could have a go and felt able to ask questions."

The Star Inn at Liverton have recently purchased a defibrillator from HeartSWell, accessible to all members of the local community and passersby helping us in our mission to create a heart-safe South West.

We are so pleased that more and more people are taking the step to equip their local areas with these lifesaving devices.

Emma has clearly caught the defibrillator bug and is now fundraising for a 2nd device for the people of Liverton.

We have every confidence in you Emma! Watch this space for defibrillator number 2...
