Find out more about our Sponsored Charity – HeartSWell

Posted by on September 7th, 2017.


As you know, at TorFX our team like to lend their support to local and national charities whenever they can. Earlier this summer, we raised £245 for HeartSWell – a South West charity which provides help and support to people suffering from heart conditions and their families.

HeartSWell is focused on the South West and Devon and provides:

  • Specialist nursing care
  • Counselling and patient information
  • Essential equipment for hospitals
  • Lifesaving equipment for communities, including several community access defibrillators
  • Overnight accommodation for patients and families receiving treatment at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth at HeartSWell Lodge

Over the last few years HeartSWell has also been busy installing defibrillators across the South West in community spaces including schools, sports clubs and town halls.

The charity offers essential training in using these bits of equipment so people feel that they can not only spot the early signs of a heart attack but also know what action to take if a cardiovascular situation deteriorates.

So far HeartSWell have installed 70 defibrillators, and with contributions from the charity’s supporters this good work can continue.

On receiving our donation, a HeartSWell Trustee said “Thank you so much for your generosity.  Your support means so much to us and goes such a long way to help heart patients and their families through such a difficult time.”
