Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA) Tewkesbury, are appealing for women of all ages to come along and get involved with the local volunteer rescue team.
The charity are hosting a ladies evening in the Eric Morecambe suite at the Roses theatre, Tewkesbury 09/08/13 at 7:30PM.
The night will give ladies a chance to learn about how they can help this local good cause, enjoy some wine tasting (over 18s only), beauty treatments and a raffle. The cost is a bargain price of £5 per person, with all profits going to the Oldbury Road based rescue station.
Kate Smith, Tewkesbury’s fundraising officer says:
“there are a number of ways to get involved with SARA that don’t necessarily mean going on shouts. I want the evening to promote the fundraising and support network that we are currently trying to grow at our Tewkesbury station. A lot of the time we need volunteers to support us by writing letters, attending and organising community events and generally promoting us in the local area. Along with this the rescue environment is very male orientated, I want the evening to promote women’s involvement in this area”
No pre registration is required however please contact Kate Smith on 07973 852166 or Libby Miles on 07917 215521 for any further information.
Last year the volunteers from SARA Tewkesbury responded to thirty-eight 999 calls including many flooding emergencies across Gloucestershire and beyond. The station has running costs of around £20,000PA and requires continuous support from fundraisers to ensure the team can remain on constant standby.
