Water rescuers thrown lifeline

Rescuers get grant for vital equipment Credit: ITV Border

Rescue volunteers in the Borders have been given £18,000 as part of a grant to help them save lives on water.

The money will go towards life-saving equipment and recruiting new volunteers.

Without the right kit and equipment, the Borders Water Rescue Service says it wouldn't be able to work as fast or as efficiently as they do now.

The grant will go towards a new boat and equipment for six volunteers who will be crewing it

The team help people who get into trouble out on water around the Borders.

The rescue team is one of dozens of charities across the uk to benefit from a share of the Government's £1m 'rescue boat fund' which, over the past 4 years, has helped over 100 rescue charities.

"It will give us a National capability and then we can be deployed anywhere within the UK.

Recruitment is really important because if we have recruitment the better we can respond and the more team members we have the better the response team obviously. We are all volunteers and we work together as a team, the more the merrier within reason."

– David Fuller-Shapcott, Borders Water Rescue Team
