This week has seen a huge hike in requests for our service. We need help with raising funds to cover our core running costs so that as a Team we can continue to respond to our search and rescue Call-Outs and maintain our community support work. Our traditional fundraising methods have been massively affected by COVID-19 and as such we are having to think outside the box in regards to how we continue to operate.
We have set ourselves a target of raising £2,000 with this appeal which will help us:
Put fuel in our vehicles for the next few months
Cover our base runnning costs – heating and electricity, water, insurance etc
Purchase vital PPE for our volunteers to keep them safe during Call-Outs
Purchase medical supplies to help us treat our casualties
Replace and maintain equipment used during Call-Outs
£2,000 will buy us some breathing space, allow us to focus on delivering help and support to our local communities during the coming few months and time to look for other funding.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
