On Wednesday evening, 18th May 2016, Wilderness NSRI, Station 23, hosted the Management of Kloppers CAW, the Expert Household Retailer in George, to hand over a Certificate of Appreciation for a donation towards the rescue base.
The donation consists of top of the range LED Headlamps, LED Torches and also Vehicle spotlights. This very generous donation was made after the Rescue crew identified a need for personal lighting equipment, as rescue work is often effected after dark. When the management of Kloppers was approached for assistance, they came out in support of Wilderness Sea Rescue without hesitation.
The equipment donated will not only help our Volunteers to do rescue work at night more effectively, but it will also ensure the safety of our Volunteers when they are out serving our community.
