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."
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
