ERTSAR awarded £20,000 from the People’s Postcode Trust and players of the People’s Postcode Lottery
We are delighted to announce the award of £20k from the People’s Postcode Trust and players of the People’s Postcode Lottery. This generous donation will be used to purchase a 4X4 rescue vehicle, rescue boat engine, prop guard and trailer.
ERTSAR chief Gary Foo said: “This incredible donation is fantastic for us as we look to bolster our water and flood rescue capabilities going into what is predicted to be an extremely wet winter. The new equipment will enable us to deploy quickly when called to support communities throughout the UK affected by flooding, providing critical and life saving support. I would like to thank the players of the People’s Postcode lottery and the Postcode trust for this amazing contribution.”
ERTSAR’s dedicated volunteers have continued to train hard throughout 2016, rehearsing the rescue techniques and procedures required during a flood deployment. Should the worst happen, the unit is on standby to deploy nationwide.
People’s Postcode Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
