Copeland Community Fund were kind enough to invite us to their event this week celebrating volunteers in Copeland at Whitehaven Golf Club, which saw 140 volunteers attending from many different volunteer organisations. At the dinner we were asked to use our craft skills to build something and so the obvious choice was a model of the new base. Here it is with Debs putting the final touches to the new base diorama with model casualty, stretcher, rescuers, search dog and even a model vehicle designed by Chris. We won the runner up prize and a bag of chocolates!
Anyway a big thank you must go to Copeland Community Fund for inviting us and for the very significant grant that they awarded the team, which enabled the new base project to begin.
