If you have any donations of furniture, clothes, working electricals, toys, DVDs or books for stock you can drop these off Monday to Saturday 10am to 4pm. If you would like to volunteer to help in the shop for a few hours a week please call in. You can also email Jill or phone 015395 64254.

BSAR sharing Lancs Fire Station at Bolton le Sands
One of our Hagglund Rescue Vehicles is located in Bolton Le Sands Fire Station, building on our working relationship with Lancs Fire & Rescue assisting with Moorland Fire support and shaving over an hour and a half of our response times inland. Further details from LFRS website here ::
Group Manager Tony Crook of Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service adds, “BSAR is an outstanding resource staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers. This development is the culmination of a close look at incidents involving BSAR, Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service and ourselves with a view to enhancing a service that has already proved highly effective. As key partners in Lancashire’s multi-agency response to the threat of wildfires, a logical development was to establish a more strategically appropriate location for a BSAR team to combat that threat. Our fire station at Bolton-le-Sands is ideally placed. We are delighted to make the BSAR team welcome and look forward to our continued success as partners in the project."
