On average 2100 people go missing in Surrey each year. Of that, just under half are children.
Who goes looking for your friends, family & loved ones?
Surrey Search & Rescue is a volunteer search and rescue organisation on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a Year. They work closely with the emergency services to locate missing people searching on foot and with specially trained dogs.
So far this year they have been called out 37 times to help locate the most vulnerable people in our community such as children and the elderly. All of their team members are volunteers who give their time and their knowledge for free.
Although they work closely with the Police and other emergency services, all their work is funded by contributions from individuals, organisations and grants like this one. This generous support enables us them keep volunteers on the front line of searches.
I would like to ask you for your support in this essential work.
Thank you for reading this request. I hope to hear from you soon.
