Story

A short while ago we were called out by Sussex Police to search a large area for a missing woman, as the search continued into the second day we extended our search to water courses and tunnels near Newhaven. Our water team were deployed to search theses areas via rescue sled and wading searches, this continued as darkness fell.
This type of search is typical and our highly trained Search Technicians, First Responders and Swift Water Rescue Technicians help support Police Services which would not be able to effectively cover these areas.
We are 100% funded via donation and grant funding.
We need more funds in order to continue our training and renew our qualifications.
The amount I am trying to raise is typically the amount I would need to re-qualify as a Swift Water Rescue Technician. Please can you help either with a small donation or large.
If you are part of a company could you approach others or make a collection on our behalf.
Help us continue to support the people of Sussex , the missing and vulnerable whether from suicidal feelings or illness such as Alzheimer's or Dementia,perhaps our communities in times of flood.
Thanks
Dai
