Hearts Together recently donated five publicly accessible defibrillators, complete with heated cabinets to Launceston, which have been strategically placed in high risk areas throughout the town.

The funding for this charitable activity was awarded to Hearts Together by the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme, with shoppers voting for this cause with their blue tokens.

The defibrillators are situated at Launceston library, the public toilets, the cemetery and the Co-operative Stores in Newport and on Western Road. *

This collaboration between, Tesco Bags of Help scheme, the Tesco shoppers of Launceston, the Town Council, local residents, The Co-op and Hearts Together has made it possible to equip Launceston with an additional 5 publicly accessible defibrillators which is fantastic.
