A big-hearted St Helens woman was inspired to embark on a two-year charity challenge after a witnessing a man collapse with heart problems.
Helen Twist of The Co-operative store on Higher Parr Street undertook a range of challenges and organised various events with the aim of purchasing a defibrillator.
As well as heading numerous raffles for the town, customer team member Helen has also climbed Snowdonia and took part in a brave bungee jump as part of her crusade.
Helen was inspired to act after witnessing a man collapse near the store two years ago.
She said: “A gentleman collapsed near Barclays Bank one day and there was no defibrillator anywhere near. It was really scary.
“So ever since then I vowed never to let that happen and began fund-raising.
“Now we have the life-saving equipment I’m so pleased, it’s great. All of my efforts have paid off.”
