Stay Safe

Thursday, 14 May 2020

#STAYSAFE

Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team continue to stand behind the message asking people to Stay Safe.

We do, however, understand that following the recent announcements from the government, which sees some of the restrictions placed in reaction to the COVID-19 relaxed, many of us will begin to start enjoying the outdoors more frequently and for longer durations.

Accidents do and will happen and as a team all of the extra precautions we are taking are to look out for the safety and wellbeing of our volunteers whilst maintaining the ability to remain operational and take care of the safety and wellbeing of all casualties in need of our help.

What we do ask of anyone planning any time in the outdoors is to be #adventuresmart. No matter the activity, think about your skills and capabilities, check the weather, ensure you have the relevant equipment and clothing and choose an appropriate route to help you stay safe.

So please, be safe but also remember if you do need help, CVSRT are here to provide it.

Amelia - Fundraising

Tuesday, 21 April 2020

Two years ago, we brought you the story of Amelia, a special little girl who raised an incredible £1600 for CVSRT and the Little Princess Trust.  Amelia and her family are well known to CVSRT, as her dad Richard was a team member until he sadly lost his battle with cancer in 2018.

 

As in 2018, Amelia is having her luscious locks cut and will be donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust who create wigs for children and young people suffering the devastating effects of hair loss. Her last haircut, two years ago, was her first haircut for charity and Amelia has been growing her hair ever since, and this year she would like to raise money for CVSRT, in memory of her Daddy, Richard.

 

It is coming up to two years since Richard lost his life to cancer. He is missed as much as ever by his family, all his friends and the community. Richard was a devoted member of CVSRT, a 100% voluntary charity providing an essential, life-saving emergency service to the people of Calder Valley and beyond. We are sure Amelia and the rest of Richards family and friends would be very grateful of any support you can offer.

 

You can find Amelia’s donation link here: > Amelia's Haircut for CVSRT <
