National Commitments

Our tag line “For Professionals Who Save Lives” reflects the commitment of the people we work for and we wanted to create a project which would provide financial help to rescue teams across the UK.

Frequently, life-saving teams are volunteers and under-funded – our Volunteer Heroes fund will provide financial support for teams throughout the UK.

 

APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2018 VOLUNTEER HEROES ARE NOW OPEN.


Follow our FACEBOOK page for updates. 

The National Volunteer Heroes Fund

The Volunteer Heroes Fund aims to provide financial support to volunteer rescue teams.

In need of new PPE? Or do you want to purchase new rescue equipment for your team? A maximum of £5,000 will be awarded to British Volunteer teams but this may be in one large donation, or several smaller donations to teams who need assistance.

HOW CAN I APPLY FOR FUNDING?

Simply apply via the online aplication form below. We want you to tell us more about your team, what you would like to purechase and ultimately, why your team deserve the funding.

There's no catch, simply tell us why you deserver to win and in January 2019 we will select recipients of the Ruth Lee Volunteer Heroes Fund. We will also promote your endeavours to others through PR and publicity materials - hopefully encouraging further support from other sponsors.

The social project is going to be run on an annual basis, repeated each year.

DEADLINE FOR APPLYING FOR THE 2018 RUTH LEE VOLUNTEER HEROES FUND IS 31ST DECEMBER 2018

Recent Recipients

2017 - Central Beacons Mountain Rescue - Received £5,000

The Team at Central Beacons is one of the busiest mountain rescue teams in the UK, responding to more than 140 calls in 2017. In November, they suffered a terrible fire at their base, which tore through the building destroying all of their rescue equipment and 2 of the 3 vehicles. The building was so badly damaged that when cleared, all that was left were the standing walls which need to be bleached with acid before re-building work can commence.

Currently the team is borrowing equipment from nearby teams, using their own cars and mobile phones for operations. For more serious incidents, other mountain rescue teams are having to travel to cover their area to help.

Whilst insurance will cover the re-development of the base, the two written-off vehicles (a Land Rover and the Iveco Control Truck) are both 14 years old so the insurance payment will be minimal and it will cost in excess of £120,000 to replace them.  In total, it has been estimated that the team need to raise in the region of  £250,000.                         

We hope our £5,000 donation goes some way to supporting the team to continue their vital work.
