Hi Everyone,

Some of you will already know this but my two Springer Spaniels “Tilly and Skye” and I are members of Berkshire Search and Rescue dogs and in September this year we are taking part in #4Paws3Peaks.

We are travelling in a swanky horsebox that we have kindly been donated for the trip which we are able to brand with sponsors etc. and a real bonus for us to try and raise more funds.

If you would be kind enough to follow the link and donate to support me and Tilly and Sky, we would be most grateful. I am really excited about the challenge and hope we can raise vital funds for the team.

If you wouldn’t mind sharing this with your friends and family so we make even more people aware that would be greatly appreciated

Hi Ceri
We survived!
I registered both Tiga and Yogi so they were able to share the races, Tiga did 7 races and Yogi 3. Yogi did the long 12 km race and finished 3rd in his first ever race getting a podium place at the resort.  We were lying in 4th place overall chasing hard for 3rd and trying to stay ahead of 5th and it was only in the last race that we clinched 3rd place overall in my age category.
No sooner were we back home and we were out tracking missing dogs – only possible with the help of a good quality food from CSJ and topped up with extra energy from the Fruit & Mutt bars. 
I have just placed an order for Tiga using his paw points and paid for an additional 2 bags for a friend who is now on CSJ.
I hope you like the photos!

CSJ blog team – 10 races in 9 days up and down the mountains – we’re impressed. Love the photos and hearing about how you got on!

Screen Shot 2014-06-23 at 12.19.59In September this year, 7 dogs and 8 human team members of Berkshire Search and Rescue Dog team will be taking a 5 day break from their search volunteer work to undertake the ‘3 Peak Challenge’. The challenge takes place over 3 of the UK’s largest mountains, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon. In a twist to the usual 3 Peak Challenge, the team are planning to meet and train, with their Mountain Rescue counterparts on each of the 3 peaks. We will be posting live updates via Facebook and Twitter in the run up to and throughout the 5 day adventure.

Why are we doing the 3 Peak Challenge?

Every year many people go missing in the UK, some of these are regarded as High Risk and Vulnerable such as young children, dementia sufferers or those who are suicidal. Berkshire Search and Rescue Dogs is a fully volunteer organisation who are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year supporting Thames Valley Police to search and locate missing people and return them to their families. The team responds to callouts in Berkshire and also assists similar teams in surrounding counties. The service is provided completely free of charge and is funded through charitable donations from the public, local and national businesses. The aim of the challenge is to raise much needed funds to improve the equipment for our team that enables us to provide this important search and rescue service. Equipment requirements include updates to our team radios to make communications clearer and more secure plus providing the added benefit of GPS so our search controllers know exactly where our teams are located and exactly where they have searched.

What do we need?

Undertaking such a huge event not only involves hours of event planning and practice from our volunteers but also has a cost associated. Therefore, we are keen to establish a relationship with a Sponsorship Partner who is willing to support the overheads of the challenge in return for advertising opportunities on our dogs, team members and support vehicles. By sponsoring the challenge, your company branding will not only benefit from the positive association of an established search charity but also the successful outcome of a demanding challenge. In providing this financial support you will benefit from the media awareness generated by our Press Office.

How can you help?

Contact us now to find out more information about how your company can sponsor the challenge team or perhaps donate towards the equipment for our adventure: equipment@k9-sar.com

If you are unable to provide full or part-sponsorship for this challenge, there are still alternative opportunities to donate funds directly to our ongoing search activities to help us to save lives. Berkshire Search and Rescue Dogs have equipment requirements ranging from £1 to £10,000 so donations of any size will be welcome. Please contact us now at: fundraising@k9-sar.com
