My story

I volunteer for the Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton team, and previously had the honour of working with the team at the Rowcroft hospice. Both of these charities perform incredible and inspiring work 24 hours/day, 365 days a year.....and always with a smile.

My reasons for undertaking this challenge to try and raise awareness and vital funds for these two charities are simple: they have inspired me with their relentless perseverance of providing the best quality of care to those in need. I want to help them continue this work.

Donations are critical to maintaining the life-saving service of Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton. The small team of volunteers relies on public and business donations for over 90% of its income. Without public support, the free search and rescue service to Dartmoor National park and the communities of south and east Devon would cease to operate.

Very few people know about the vital work that the Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton performs. Apart from searching for injured or lost walkers, cyclists, horse riders, and kayakers on Dartmoor, the team gets a number of callouts each year to rural and urban areas across Devon including Exeter, Torbay, Newton Abbot, Exmouth, and Totnes. They will search for missing persons right to the Dorset border at Lyme Regis, and sometimes further afield. The team are frequently called to search for vulnerable people such as dementia patients and despondents including suicide risks and will turn out anytime day and night to help. The Police and the emergency services don’t have the resources needed for detailed searching required for missing person enquiries and now rely on search and rescue charities like the Rescue team to assist them.

The Rowcroft team are committed to making every day the best day possible for people living with life-limiting illnesses across South Devon, and providing comfort and support to families coping with the hardest days. Irrespective of diagnosis or circumstance the team are available to all those living with a life-limiting illness over 18 years old, and their families, completely free of charge.

This will be a huge challenge for me, going longer, harder, and higher (total combined ascent) than I ever have before. I am excited, anxious, but determined to complete this mission and help those in need in the local community.

Your donations make a huge difference to those in need. Thank you in advance for your consideration to help me, support them. Any donations will be divided equally.
