Councillors Phill Bicknell and Natasha Airey who represent Park ward on the Royal Borough are donating £1,000 from their personal budget to the Windsor Community First Responders.

The Responders are trained volunteers who get called out when someone has a heart attack in their vicinity.

Armed with defibrillators they can save a life while the patient is waiting for the ambulance with its trained paramedics to arrive.

Cllr Airey said: "They are trying to get more defibrillators in public places in Windsor. They have also made nearly 1,000 responses this year alone which is a fantastic - and vital - contribution to Windsor community life."
