Support Us

It costs £30,000 a year to keep us on our feet (and wheels)

Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team is an entirely charitable organisation - we receive no funding from the Government to provide our vital service and all of the team members are unpaid volunteers.

All donations go towards our running costs, maintaining our base, equipment and vehicles or the purchase of equipment.

How can you help?

... you could make a contribution to our running costs ... donate your own professional skills ... help out with fundraising or at one of our events ... join our training sessions as a casualty ... join our Support Group.
