From Hill to High Water

Dorset Freemasons from Wimborne are proud to support Dorset Search and Rescue (DorSAR).

DorSAR is a team of highly trained volunteers who work with the police, coastguard and other emergency services. They assist in the search and recovery of missing persons and items, plus specialist water rescue. Called into action via Dorset Police, DorSAR are able to offer considerable resources to support the county's emergency services with over 80 specialised volunteer search and rescue personnel.

The Lodge of St Cuthberga raised funds with lodge raffles and social occasions throughout the year. On Sunday morning, at a remote location in Dorset and during a break in training, a cheque for £3062 was presented to DorSAR.

Paul Martin of DorSAR stated, 'It's approximately £400 to fully equip a volunteer and our Control Vehicle, which we require at major incidents, is in need of maintenance. The money raised by Dorset Freemasons will help towards equipment and transport'.

The brethren of the Lodge of St Cuthberga are delighted that the money will help save lives.
