As part of our ongoing partnership with Daisychain Benevolent Fund, crew from Tewkesbury Station have pledged to help out over two busy weekends this summer in Evesham. Crew will be on hand to help staff during busy periods and offer water safety advice to locals, as well as explaining the work SARA does in the local area.
The Daisychain Shop on Bridge Street has two annual busy summer weekends – Evesham River Festival (6th-8th July) and Evesham Festival (25th-27th August), a three-day fishing event.
Crew have also been collecting reuseable goods and have started donating these to Daisychain for processing and sale to raise money for the charitable causes Daisychain supports. SARA was named as one of their main charities for 2012/2013 with their local focus being key to this.
Station Manager at Tewkesbury, Tom Keeling said:
“We are thrilled Daisychain Benevolent Fund has chosen SARA to be a main charity for next year. We are keen to help out with their activities as much as we can, and the whole crew has got behind this by offering time or donating goods. The service our volunteer crews provide benefits all the communities in our local area, something that is at the very heart of Daisychain’s aims.”
Wyre Forest Rescue Station and Tewkesbury Rescue Station are looking for the donation of items that can be sold by DCBF in its shops – either contact your local station to arrange delivery/collection or take directly to any DCBF shop, telling the staff “SARA sent you!”
The items they are always looking for include:
- CDs, DVDs, etc
- And more!
Keep your eyes peeled on our news feed for details of when and where SARA crew will be appearing at DCBF shops and events!
