Donations total almost £750,000

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) would like to thank the residents of Tyne & Wear for helping its shops raise £742,000 in the past year to help fund life-saving research.

This has enabled the BHF to fund 39 defibrillators, 19 healthcare professionals and life-saving diagnostic equipment, such as ultrasounds and ECG machines, in the local area.

In addition to this, the BHF has to date helped to fund 23 research grants, worth more than £7.3m.
