IFRA have at the end of April a mission ( our 48th ) to Paraguay to carry out Rope Rescue training and we are sending 3 instructors on this mission, crew already chosen for this mission.  

We will also have a mission to Bosnia –likely to be around mid June and nominations for this mission now open although i cant tell you any other info as it is not available yet.

There are likely to be about 3-4 other missions later in the year but as i get info i will make it available to all members.

 

We have as at today NO major fundraising efforts underway. We are due our annual insurances of £2500 in August and for this we need fundraising.
