Representatives from Dorset Search & Rescue (DorSAR) gave a presentation at the Humphries Kirk business networking event at Parkstone Golf Club.
DorSAR work with Dorset Police, coastguard and other emergency services in the search and recovery of missing persons, flood water rescue and support at major incidents. DorSAR is Humphries Kirk Bournemouth’s chosen charity of the year.
Paul Martin and Brian Kennedy from the operational search team at DorSAR attended the Humphries Kirk event to talk about the work the emergency teams undertake across the county and to explain how they operate.
Audrey Spencer, associate solicitor and head of employment at Humphries Kirk, said: “It was great to have Paul and Brian from DorSAR attend our breakfast networking event. Guests heard about searching for, rescuing and recovering those missing or in distress on land and inland waterways.”
Paul Martin, fundraising officer at Dorset Search and Rescue, commented: “DorSAR is one of 36 regional Lowland Rescue groups and was founded in 2004. We are made up entirely of around 60 volunteers and rely on fundraising and donations to maintain our operations.
“We’re truly grateful to Humphries Kirk for making us one of their charities of the year and it was great to speak at their business event earlier this week. Thanks to their invite, we were able to explain more about the Aviva Community Fund, a grant for a Vehicle Storage & Training Facility which we are currently applying for – and need all the supporting votes we can get via this link https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/project/view/17-5771.”
