In order for the Marinewatch project to remain viable, we need as much funding and support as possible.
WE ARE A REGISTERED CHARITY – RCN No. 20107932 / CHY 22083.
We get NO MONEY or support from the Government, or from Grants etc. – every cent needed to operate comes from the local community, local authority and kind donations from similar organisations involved in suicide prevention.
Our scheme has many overheads including Vehicles, Diesel, Searchlights, Throw-bags, First Aid, Training, Foul-weather Clothing, Radios, Maintenance, Storage, Postage etc. all which cost money.
We need urgent assistance and welcome any ideas people may have to help us out;
Maybe you are a Band willing to play a Gig for us? – Or a runner willing to run a Marathon for us? – Or even a Farmer willing to do a Tractor run for us?! – Or maybe a sponsored silence, or a Fast? – no matter how big or small your idea is… every cent counts and makes all the difference to someones life…
“NO AMOUNT COLLECTED IS TOO BIG OR SMALL – THERE IS NO PRICE ON LIFE”.
Wexford MarineWatch organise several fundraising events throughout the year and your support is critical to our survival. If you see any event in aid of Marinewatch, please give us your support – a friend or family member may need us some day.
*Whilst we are most grateful for financial assistance from fundraising events, unfortunately it is the policy of Wexford Marinewatch that we DO NOT provide volunteers/manpower to assist at external fundraising events. This is for insurance reasons – also due to the fact that our volunteers go above and beyond their remit each month by giving up their time for patrolling & training – therefore we do not consider it fair to ask them to assist with fundraising events also.
We will quite happily assist in promoting your event however, and provide advertising banners etc. for same, where possible.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
