Donation to Mendip Cave Rescue
« on: March 04, 2020, 10:01:10 am »
Having been recently rescued by this fine organisation, I though a donation was in order, however I couldn't see anything on their website indicating how to make one. Does anyone know an address & who to make a cheque payable to (or better still bank details for a transfer?)

Thanks!

It can be given or sent to Martin Grass -Bryscombe, The Quarries, New Road, Draycott, Som. BS27 3SG. 01934742710. m.grass@btinternet.com

These details are in Mendip Underground so I cant see a problem listing them here.

It seems a bit of an oversight for an organisation (presumably) reliant on donations not to include information on their main web page as to how you can donate!

Bearing in mind I cave on Mendip and might need  MCR to save my life I prefer to be a bit more positive about this.

I assume MCR is a competent organisation that knows what they are doing. If they don't have information about how to donate on their main web page, or any other web page it's because they don't want it there.

Why is another question, perhaps they prefer beer?

No, I'm playing all the right notes

Or they manage to cover costs with the collection boxes, events & bequests they already have...

MCR have donation tins in at least the Hunters, Belfry and Wessex huts, not sure about any of the others. Maybe we do need to get more tech savvy and give the opportunity for donations via the website and facebook, it's not really been asked for until now, i think most will contact us via Martin as secretary or one of the wardens if they wish to give a donation via another means, which of course are always welcomed by any voluntary organisation. :)
