Donation from popular Dartmoor business vital for saving lives

Each year Ullacombe Farm likes to support a local good cause to support throughout the year`, and over the last 12 months, its staff and customers have been raising money for Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton.

At its popular Funny Farm Festival event in September, Ullacombe farm's Debbie Coles unveiled a grand total of £3,489.68 raised for the volunteer charity of rescuers. Team Search Manager Dave Underhill said ' We are extremely grateful to the wonderful staff and customers of Ullacombe Farm for raising this amazing amount for team funds.'

'We rely on public donations for over 92% of our funding so support from the public and local businesses is critical to our continued operation, enabling us to help those in need. The donation shall be used to help meet the rising costs of vehicle and equipment maintenance which is a continuing drain on our limited resources.'

Debbie Coles from Ullacombe Farm said 'We've very much enjoyed raising vital funds for the team at Ashburton this year - even taking part in the 18-mile Templer Way Challenge in the pouring rain was great fun! Our fabulous staff and customers never fail to rise to the challenge, and we are delighted that our donation will help the team continue to provide the vital service it does to visitors and the local community.'

Slimming World save pounds for rescuers

Slimming World save pounds for rescuers

Over the past twelve months, the members of Ashburton and Buckfastleigh Slimming World have raised an amazing £300 for Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashbuton. Their members have devised a novel way of raising money for local causes by collecting the five pence pieces which they would normally have in change from their weekly membership fees. Team member Phil Martin said “Last year the team were called out to assist the police 29 times, providing their search skills in both rural and urban areas. To meet our operational costs we need to raise £17,000 a year and we are extremely grateful for this donation.”
