Aberdyfi Search & Rescue Team presented with Co-Op Community Fund Donations

Over the last week or so, Aberdyfi Search & Rescue Team was presented with Co-Op Community Fund Donations from the Tywyn and Dolgellau branches totalling an incredible £8,234.92.

“To date the Co-Op Community fund has paid out around 20 million pounds to worthy causes, and we are grateful to have been fortunate enough to have benefited from this fantastic initiative,” said Team fundraising Officer, Ian Pilcher.

“As a charity, the Team relies solely on charitable donations to maintain its operational status. Our members are all unpaid volunteers who give up large amount of time to train, and may be called-upon at any time of day or night, 365 days a year; to help those who find themselves lost, injured, unwell or requiring emergency assistance in high risk and inhospitable environments”.

“Needless to say this total, along with the support that we have received from staff and customers at the Tywyn and Dolgellau stores provides us with a significant boost”  added Ian.

With the Team on course for its busiest year since formation the Community Fund donation will be used to purchase and renew essential equipment, provide additional training for team members, and contribute to the annual running costs of the team.

Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team have also been selected by the Co-op Store in Tywyn as one of the local causes supported Co-Op Community Fund for the next 12 months. You can select the Team  as your chosen cause to guarantee that the team receives the 1% community donation from your basket total and it doesn't cost you a penny extra.
