Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. This July, I'm running in the Stoke-on-Trent Festival Of Running 2018 Half Marathon for the Staffordshire Search and Rescue Team (SSART).
Staffordshire Search & Rescue Team (SSART) is a highly skilled team of dedicated volunteers who give up a lot of their own valuable time to provide a service to the emergency services in the upmost professional manner.
The SSART provide a wide range of specialist services & skills to help the local community during a crisis. These specialist services & skills include effective missing person searching in rural and urban lowland environments, first aid and casualty care, map reading and navigation, 4x4 driving in adverse conditions, aircraft crash site management, radio communications, missing person behaviour, and a host of other essential skills. The SSART is also a Full Member of the Association of Lowland Search Rescue (ALSAR), and by mutual agreement, associate members of the Mountain Rescue (England & Wales). The membership of ALSAR is essential in that it provides its teams National recognition, credibility and support including representation in Parliament to promote further the work of volunteer search & rescue Teams in the UK.
Earlier last month, extensive searches were carried out by many specialist teams (including the SSART) to conduct a search for 13-year old Ryan Evans in Westport Lake after it was reported he was experiencing distress whilst in the water with two of his friends. Unfortunately, Ryan had died and his body was found by the SSART after three days of searching the lake. The charity consists of volunteers and receives no government funding. Here is your chance to reward the charity for their hard work and effort that the volunteers take on.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. All donations will be sent directly to the charity.
