WEST Mercia Search and Rescue has received a £500 funding boost from Redrow Homes which is building properties on The Orchards development in Droitwich.
The cash – contributed as part of the housebuilder’s community fund – will be used by the group to buy brand new lifejackets and to support its lifesaving missions.
West Mercia Search and Rescue finds missing people in floods and responds to crises alongside emergency services.
David Henretty, from West Mercia Search and Rescue, thanked Redrow and said: “We are long overdue a new set of lifejackets for our volunteers, so the donation will go a long way in ensuring they’re able to continue to support the community in the best possible conditions.
“We couldn’t do our essential work without the kind donations of local businesses and individuals, such as Redrow Midlands, and this makes such a difference to the lives of those in need.”
Elaine Cartwright, Sales Director at Redrow Midlands, added: “We are delighted to be supporting West Mercia Search and Rescue.
“In times of crisis, West Mercia Search and Rescue are there for people across the Midlands.
“The volunteers and their quiet heroics are nothing short of extraordinary, and their commitment to keeping everyone in the community safe deserves to be recognised.
“We hope by supporting such an important community service, we can help make things easier for the West Mercia Search and Rescue. We look forward to continuing to build upon our relationship.”
Through its Community Fund, Redrow will donate £5,000 to local organisations throughout 2021 and 2022.
