Border Water Rescue Team

18 February 2020

The Morrisons Foundation has donated £3,240 to Borders Water Rescue Team (BWRT), a charity that provides a volunteer water-related search, rescue and recovery service on the Scottish border.

The support from the Morrisons Foundation will fund new safety equipment for the charity, including an aqua scope, inflation pump for rescue craft, rope access hardware and helmets; all of which will be used by their volunteers to help rescue people in hazardous waters across the Scottish borders.

Andy Wright, Team Leader at BWRT was thrilled to receive the donation. He said: “We are delighted to receive such a kind grant from The Morrisons Foundation. This not only expands our whole team’s capabilities but helps us develop our advance level technicians. Enabling them to put their skills into practice where required, by having the most appropriate equipment available to them at all times."

"This grant also allows us to welcome new team members with new helmets and equipment able to be used for their training and the whole team’s ongoing development.”
