Pupils and teachers from Windsor Girls School and St George's School are teaming up - to buy a life saving defibrillator for their community.

On Thursday, November 21 the pupils and teachers from St George’s School which is based at Windsor Castle will team up with students from the Girls School to take part in a 'walk the peaks' challenge.

They will cover the equivalent of the three highest peaks in the UK, Ben Nevis, Scafell and Snowdon - doing it all in the grounds of St George's with its magnificent castle background.

The organiser - St George's teacher Richard Wilson, said: "The young leaders at St Georges School as well as volunteers from Windsor Girls School are looking forward immensely to raising money for such a worthwhile cause. We are going to run, walk, hop and use other inventive ideas to cover the distance of the three peaks challenge."

The aim is to get students involved in helping their local community by buying a defibrillator that can be placed in a public spot and used to save a heart attack victim.

Mr Wilson said: “We have been impressed with the work the Windsor Community Defibrillator Partnership has done. In addition we have a good relationship with Police Community Support Officer David Bullock and his motivation is infectious. Finally, defibrillators are life saving devices, so it's a no brainer for motivation for a lot of our children."

The project started with St George’s organising a 'guess the number of plastic balls in a Defibrillator Safe' challenge which raised £360.

Mr Wilson will be organising a crowdfunding page that will go live just before the event.
