Rescue Centre Rebuild Appeal – 2022

What we need to do further:

We need to raise money for an additional building for our Rescue Centre to house our rescue vehicles, as well as vital redevelopments to be made to the current building to improve our facilities and help us to continue to engage with our local community.

Why we need to do it:

The additional building for our Rescue Centre will guarantee our viability as an effective Search & Rescue resource because it will be used to house all three of our rescue vehicles. One of the improvements which needs to be made is to enlarge our kit drying rooms. As our remit of rescue scenarios increases, including both technical rope rescues and swift water rescues, so does the need for more equipment and its ability to be dried in appropriate spaces; this demand has increased dramatically over the last 25 years since our initial kit storage rooms were created!

How much will it cost us?

Our Rescue Centre appeal aims to raise £65,000 in 2022.

Why we need your help:

DSRT Tavistock receives no government funding and relies solely on donations to remain operational. Clearly, raising an additional £65,000 represents an enormous challenge, which is why we have launched the Rescue Centre Rebuild appeal. We cannot raise this money on our own and need your help.


There are many ways to DONATE, from shopping online through Amazon Smile and Easyfundraising, taking a punt with the SeaMoor Lotto, to just sending us a cheque (with Gift-Aid). See our DONATE page or you can donate straight to our JustGiving page for this appeal:
