As we are a fully volunteer organisation the raising of funds is a key task for us.
We receive no government or public funding whatsoever. We are funded entirely by donations from members of the public, local businesses, and charitable foundations. All funds raised will go towards assist us in the valuable work we will be undertaking, from purchasing essential equipment to paying for fuel to get our teams to the scene of a search.
Sainsburys Charity of the Year (Wigston)
We would like to thank the staff and customers of Sainsbury's, Wigston for selecting LeicSAR as their Charity of the Year. We have already held a few fundraising events and look forward to further joint activities during the coming year
How you can help?
Make a donation
You can do so now by simply sending a text to 70070 with the word LEIC01 and the chosen amount, eg. LEIC01 £5
Alternatively, if you prefer to make a donation by another means, please contact us.
Ask your employer if they support payroll giving. This is a scheme that allows employees to make donations on a regular basis straight from the employer's payroll before tax is deducted (thus increasing the amount donated - at no extra cost to you). See the Inland Revenue web site for more information.
