WILSAR Chair’s Xmas Greeting

Dear All

“‘Tis the season to be jolly” and all that… When so many of us look forward to time with the family, maybe parties or perhaps you could be working, it is also a time to remember that for various and sometimes very sad reasons, people go missing. It is also then that we remind ourselves about why we signed up and trained in the first place to be a member of a Search and Rescue Team and then act on it.

WILSAR has had a very busy year approaching 60 call outs and I would like to thank all of our volunteers for your time and commitment to the Team. Everyone in the team, the missing person and the Police depend on our help so please continue to respond to callouts and consider your availability. I extend that gratitude and season’s greetings to Wiltshire Police, all the other Lowland Rescue Teams, our supporters, fundraisers, donors, all the other services we’ve worked with and all the families and loved ones of the missing people that we’ve assisted.

Have a happy and peaceful Christmas and all the very best for a great New Year ahead.

Kind regards and take care,

Gail Leaman
