Severn Area Rescue Association

Registered Charity No 1193634

SARA is the all-volunteer search and rescue organisation for a large area of south west England around the River Severn and its estuary.

SARA operate inshore lifeboats on the tidal rivers Severn, Wye and Usk and we conduct both land and inland water search and rescue for high-risk missing people and others in distress across Gloucestershire and all the way up the Severn region to Kidderminster.

SARA has around 200 volunteers and is tasked by the Coastguard, Fire, Police and Ambulance services across its operational area, on average 2-3 times per week, every week of the year. In 2020 SARA responded to 126 different operations. It has 6 x flood teams declared to the national authorities, and they can be (are sometimes are) sent to distant counties when they are in need.

SARA is a charity and has to raise all the costs of running this rescue operation, well over £100,000 per year. Supporting SARA through the Unity Lottery is an excellent way to help SARA to help other people, and have fun at the same time!
