A HOME store has vowed to help raise £2 million for the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

Staff at Orpington Homebase launched their charity partnership on Monday and will aim to raise funds for the BHF for two years.

The 'Keeping Hearts Beating' campaign will run through all of Homebase's 330 stores in the UK with the money raised by staff and customers helping to place defibrillators in GP surgeries and responder groups within communities.

Carol Tanner, Store Manager at Homebase, Orpington, said: "Heart disease touches the lives of so many people, including some of our staff and customers, so it is something we feel very strongly about."

Douglas Rouse, Head of Corporate Partnerships at the BHF said: "We are delighted to have the support of staff at Homebase in Orpington. This partnership will bring lots of exciting and fun opportunities to raise vital funds.
