Volunteers Week

07 Jun 2020


This week has been volunteers’ week which is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.

As a charity Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) receive no direct funding from the government and in 2019 alone our volunteers gave 15,000 hours that covered fundraising events, training and attending callouts.

In 2020 and with the COVID19 pandemic that is affecting all of us, nearly all planned fundraising events have been cancelled, however CVSRT have remained operational throughout attending 39 callouts so far this year.

We could not continue to operate without the fantastic support we are fortunate to receive and we thank everyone who has supported CVSRT over the years, it really does mean a lot to the team.
