Dog trainer Janet Garrett, of Janet's Puppy Skool, attended Horizons College yesterday in her campaign to help fundraise money for defibrillators.

Horizons College is part of Uplands Educational Trust on Stratton Road, which is a specialist learning centre for young adults aged 16 to 25 with severe learning difficulties.

Working with Swindon Heart Safe, Janet has been assisting mums Sonia Dykes and Kayleigh Headland raise money to provide defibrillators for local schools. So far, Horizons College is the sixth school to receive one.

On presenting the defibrillator, Janet said: "I'm sure with ladies like Sonia and Kayleigh at the helm, Swindon Heart Safe will reach their goal of a defibrillator in every school very soon.

"It has been a privilege to be a part of their campaign."

Horizons College's Office Manager, Marie Beeden, added: "Horizons College have a lot of young people with medical needs. To have this on hand could save a life. As a charity it was something we would have struggled to raise funds for.

"Janet was fantastic. Friendly and helpful from the start, we are very grateful."
