A RURAL parish council have joined forces with Tesco to provide potentially life-saving equipment.
Croxden Parish Council applied to the Tesco Bags of Help scheme, which saw shoppers show support for community projects through tokens in-store.
Tesco donated £1,999 to the parish council after customers voted for the scheme and a defibrillator has now been installed at Croxden Abbey.
The parish council approached English Heritage for permission to install the equipment at the popular tourist attraction.
