Fundraising at Sainsbury's in CalneWiltshire Search and Rescue is a non-profit making organisation.

We do not charge anyone for the services we provide and get no funding from the government or local authority so we rely entirely on our own fundraising and public donation.

We are a registered charity.

It costs in excess of £10,000 per year to remain operational excluding the purchase of major investments like vehicles etc! We have no paid employees and all our members are volunteers who pay for their own personal equipment, clothing, fuel and expenses.

Our members work hard to raise funds for the team. As well as spending time on street collections and other direct means of collecting cash from generous members of the public, we also organise activities and involve ourselves in other people’s fundraising.
