Trossachs Search and Rescue

We provide a Search and Rescue service to save lives

Charity Registration No. SC028266

Story

On Sunday 21st May, I will be running Stirling's first ever Marathon, to raise funds for the Trossachs Search and Rescue Team, of whom I am a fully qualified member.

The work the team undertakes, purely on a voluntary basis, was recognised with the 'Charity of the Year' in 2016.

We’ve now placed over 105 public access defibs that have successfully resuscitated 6 members of the public in the last 4 years, annually train over 1,000 people in CPR, undertake national search & rescue missions with our dog teams to search/recover members of the public, as well as provide medical cover for the Scottish Ambulance Service.

However, we’re completely dependent on donations, receiving no financial support from the government.

If you can spare a few old or new pounds, to allow such important life saving work to continue, then your money will go a long way.

My thanks on behalf of the 30 volunteers and wonderful dog teams.
