• WCS Group is the leading national water treatment specialist and their staff have made SARA Sharpness their Charity of the Year. They have, so far, raised more than £1,500 towards our ongoing costs and have also donated a Ford Transit Custom van. This vehicle will allow us to respond more effectively to flood and swift water rescues; it will also help with our fundraising by allowing us to keep our primary response vehicle on-station, ready to deploy in an emergency.

    We really are very lucky to have such great supporters!

  • At SARA we are monitoring the situation with Coronavirus very carefully. We have this week taken the decision to focus almost exclusively on maintaining our rescue capabilities over the next few months.
    That means that we will only be conducting the most essential training, and you won’t see us out fundraising in public. We are also postponing visits to our rescue stations.
    We love meeting our supporters and hosting visits, and we will get back to business-as-usual as quickly as we can!
    We also have a number of sporting and other events to which we have committed to providing safety and first aid cover over the summer months. We will be working with all the event organisers individually, to agree what is appropriate.
    Many thanks for your support.
