Unlike many of the land-based voluntary rescue teams, we do not get any Government assistance at all! Borders Water Rescue Team is a charity based in and providing services throughout the Borders and farther afield. We have to use our own initiative to raise funds from a variety of sources for our worthwhile and essential services.
Donations or other financial help, from whatever source, and for however much someone can afford, is always gratefully received and put to good use. Team equipment is transported in a trailer on which a number of sponsors have advertising space. The sponsor, on an annual basis, purchases each space, and sign writing is applied accordingly. Team equipment or clothing is also available for sponsorship. Any interested sponsors should contact the Team directly.
Donations to the Team (which should be gift-aided if possible), can be made as follows:
