Hand on Heart Announces Salford as a Heart Safe City

heart safe salford

Hand on Heart is incredibly happy to announce that Salford is now officially the first Heart Safe city in the UK!


Thanks to our campaign which began in August 2013, we’ve been able to help the 97 schools within Salford become equipped with life-saving defibrillators, which are the only definitive treatment against Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

We met with Salford City Mayor Ian Stewart who said; “Once again Salford people have blazed a trail that I hope every other school in the country will be able to copy.

“These devices literally save lives and it is a fantastic achievement for Hand on Heart to put one in every school in Salford.”

We could not have achieved the fantastic completion of this campaign, without the help from our supporters, from local companies, to fundraising individuals; we thank you for your incredible support and help in making our local community the first Heart Safe city in the UK.

Our achievement was covered in the Manchester Evening news which can be read here. Don’t forget to share and thanks again for all of your support!
