Wish List Appeal
We are often asked if there’s a specific piece of equipment or a team resource that requires direct funding. For example, following the 2012 floods in the Calder Valley, the team received direct funding specifically to equip the team with relevant safety equipment and to train Swiftwater & Flood Water Rescue Technicians to deploy in the event of a similar disaster.
Thankfully incidents like that are few and far between, however there are other areas that would benefit from funding to allow us to maintain an effective search and rescue resource to support the statutory emergency services.
Here is a few items on our current wish list. If you would like to help fund any of these items, please contact us directly. Thank you.
Basically, it costs £35,000 a year to keep the team operational, all of which is raised through donations. We receive no direct government funding.
All donations go directly towards our running costs and purchasing essential life-saving equipment and maintaining our vehicles, base and training team members new skills.
