West Mercia Search & Rescue find people who are at risk from mental ill-health, physical injury, hazardous terrain or water, and ensure their safety. We are called out by the Police and Fire Services when help is needed in locating vulnerable people in Shropshire, Herefordshire or Worcestershire. West Mercia SAR is a certified DEFRA asset, available to be deployed to support communities affected by flooding throughout the UK. We are a registered charity, and nobody in the team is paid for their time. 100 of all donations go towards running the operational rescue team.
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach West Mercia Search and Rescue.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
