We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded two grants for funding in January 2014.
Our local Warburton’s Bakery donated £250 towards our educational aims including presentational aid and diesel for going to talks in 2014. Every year we give talks and presentations to scouts, guides, cubs, schools, WI groups and many more different parties. It is good to go out and spread the word of our services (much more than just mountains) and to provide some education to those who are interested. Many talks give people the opportunity to get ‘hands-on’ with our equipment and try a ‘rescue’ out for themselves.
We were also given £1000 by The Basil Samuel Charitable Trust to go towards our running costs in 2015. This is a great start to our fundraising targets this year.
We thank both Warburton’s and The Basil Samuel Charitable Trust for their extremely generous donations.
