Wish List

How we might spend your donation.........

When considering a donation to the team, many ask “What equipment do you actually need, and how much does that cost?”  Truthfully, that’s a bit of an uncomfortable question to answer, since we don’t want to presume what you might like to donate.  We have however come up with an idea we hope will be a solution to any unnecessary embarrassment. Our ‘Wish List’ is an attempt to give you an indication of how your very kind donation could be spent.  We hope you find this initiative useful to get a flavour for how future fund raising income will be spent.
