Recently SARA Wyre Forest were visited by Vicki and Ian Jones; parents of Tom Jones who tragically lost his life in the River Severn at Worcester in September 2018. The team were presented with a cheque from the generous donations given to the family.
We are grateful for this donation and the continued support that we receive from the community. Donations like this enable us to continue undertaking voluntary search and rescue work on land and in water.
During May and June SARA has given water awareness safety talks at schools in Bromsgrove, Redditch, Stourport, Bewdley and Kidderminster in partnership with Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, West Mercia Police and other groups working to keep young people safe from harm.
On 22nd September 2018 a team of dedicated crew members from SARA Wyre Forest Rescue Station will be taking on a 10km extreme obstacle race (https://xrunner.co.uk) to help raise much needed funds for our charity.
The crew are busy preparing for the 6 mile grueling, muddy obstacle course around their existing training and operational commitments. If you would like to show your support and help keep our rescue station operational please donate securely via out JustGiving link HERE.
100% of donations go towards keeping our organisation running as every single member is a volunteer.
Today I headed over to MAK Services 2007 Ltd of Kidderminster to pick up a donation for the SARA Wyre Forest team.
The staff at the company on Foley Park have been raising money for local charities for a long time, and SARA was the recipient of their most recent fundraising drive.
Staff raised money by donning fancy dress whilst in the office, they raised £210.00 for our team. The funds will be used to ensure the we can continue to respond to local and national emergencies.
A big thank you to all the team at MAK Services for your support!!!
