    Help the team

    You can help the team out in all sorts of ways.

    You can volunteer to be a casualty at one or our training exercises. It's a great way to get some first hand experience of what it's like to to be part of the team.

    Do you have somewhere interesting that the team can use as a training venue? Something like a big old building or warehouse, or block of flats. if so, get in touch with our training committee.

    We try to train in as many different locations as possible to give us a good range of experience.

    Sponsor us

    We are a volunteer organisation, so money is always tight.

    If you or your business can help us out with some sponsorship, that would make things a lot easier for us.

    You might like to help us out with gear, vehicles, food, money (is always nice).

    You can be sure the team will really appreciate any help we can get.
