An ambitious plan to set up 10 life saving defibrillators in Windsor Town Centre has taken another big step towards becoming a reality.
The Windsor Community Defibrillator Project is run by Windsor Lions, Windsor and Eton Rotary Club and Windsor Street Angels who look after the welfare of late revellers.
They teamed up with Windsor Town Centre Management and have now raised enough money for eight of the defibrillators to be put into place, the latest two being placed in Bachelors Acre and the atrium outside Waitrose in Windsor Yards.
Three more are soon to be installed at the Coach Park in Alma Road, near the Long Walk at Windsor Castle Public House and at the Dedworth Green Baptist Church.
The defibrillators can save heart attack victims' lives while waiting for medics to arrive.
The team behind the project have also organised essential Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation training (CPR), so that as many people as possible know how to actually use the equipment if someone suffers a heart attack in the street.
A major part of the project’s success has been achieved through the support of local businesses and organisations.
The locations of the defibrillator are Bachelors Acre, Minton Place, Oxford Road East, Royal Shopping, the Theatre Royal, Waitrose, Windsor and Eton Brewery and Windsor College.
