Cornwall Search & Rescue Team

New Operational Base

The Team has recently purchased an industrial unit in Bodmin to act as it's new operational base. Previously the team had rented a space which had become dilapidated. The new unit requires some moderations and an extension to provide the internal space needed to store our emergency vehicles.

Situation

The new operational base is not fit for our purpose. The Big Give Christmas Challenge will provide us with the funds needed to carry out works to our new base to ensure we have the internal space we need to store our emergency service vehicles and swift water rescue equipment. Additionally the new works will give us the internal training space we need for first aid and technical rope work.

Solution

Our charity will solve the problem be using funds from the Big Give Christmas Challenge to refurbish the existing base. Team members have pledged their time and resources where suitable to help ensure costs remain low, however we require materials and some professional help to ensure the works meet our requirements. The new base refurbishment will ensure we have the operational base we need for many years to come.
