Barratt David Wilson Homes Exeter, a leading homebuilder in the region, is pleased to announce a generous donation of £1,500 to Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team Tavistock (DSRT Tavistock), underscoring their commitment to the local community.
DSRT Tavistock is a dedicated volunteer organisation that plays a vital role in the safety and wellbeing of the local community. The team, comprised of highly trained volunteers, aids those who are lost, injured, or distressed in adverse situations and during difficult weather conditions. They are often the first responders in emergencies, providing a critical lifeline to those in distress. DSRT Tavistock’s selfless dedication has saved lives and provided invaluable support to people in times of crisis.
DSRT Tavistock receives no government funding, so must raise its own funds to keep the team operational, which usually costs a minimum of £25,000 per year. However, this amount does not cover recent significant capital projects such as the building of a new garage next to the rescue centre or the purchase and fit out of a new control vehicle.
The £1,500 donation from Barratt David Wilson Homes Exeter will be directed towards crucial operational needs and training initiatives for the volunteers at DSRT Tavistock. This financial support will assist them to continue their work effectively and ensure that they are equipped with the necessary resources to respond swiftly to emergencies.
Nicki Reid, sales director at Barratt David Wilson Homes Exeter, expressed her company’s commitment to the local community and their admiration for DSRT Tavistock, saying, “We are proud to support DSRT Tavistock to continue their invaluable work saving lives in this part of the world. We believe it is our responsibility as a local homebuilder to contribute to their mission. This donation is a token of our appreciation for the work they do.”
Mark Schofield, Chair of DSRT Tavistock, said, “We are grateful to Barratt David Wilson Homes Exeter for this generous donation. It will directly impact our ability to respond to emergencies, maintain our equipment, and ensure our volunteers receive the training necessary to save lives.”
Barratt David Wilson Homes Exeter looks forward to continuing its commitment to the community and to supporting organisations like DSRT Tavistock that make a significant difference in the lives of local residents.
