Volunteers who save lives on a daily basis have won the support of two central Windsor councillors.
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."
