Tesco, in partnership with the British Heart Foundation, has installed a life-saving defibrillator at its Northcott store in Glengormley.

As part of its national charity partnership with the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK, Tesco is installing defibrillators in all its stores and offices. The defibrillators, which are simple to operate, will be available for use by customers and staff in the event of a cardiac emergency.

Kim O’Donnell, Tesco Northcott Community Champion, said the new equipment is a welcome addition to the store.

“We are excited to see this life-saving piece of equipment installed in our store and local community. It could make a real difference in an emergency situation,” she said.
