2023 Charity Support - Humber Rescue

Although we are a small club in the scale of Ford Clubs worldwide, as part of our social responsibility pledge, the FTC-GB Club is committed to supporting local and regional charities within the UK.

To this end, we aiain set a target to raise £500 during 2023 and donate it to our chosen charity, Humber Rescue.

In our typical, reserved, style we revealed the total donation amount at the 2023 NEC Show followed by a "big cheque" hand over at the Humber Bridge...

This year, the members of the FTC-GB raised a very impressive £554.21, bringing the total of our charitable donations to £1,633.41 over the last three-years!

The FTC-GB is operated and maintained for fans of the Ford Taunus. We offer FREE membership and generate operational income by selling Regalia and Spare Parts to support the running of the Club.


About Humber Rescue

Humber-Logo-250x250 Humber Rescue is an independent charity providing fast response search and rescue operations on the Humber Estuary. They cover approximately 540 square miles of water, including the River Hull, Trent, Ouse and the River Humber.

The charity was founded by Paul Berriff in 1990 and originally operated out of Paul's back garden! Starting with nothing more than a Landrover and a small 12ft rubber dingy, the charity soon out grew the premises and in 1995 the "Boathouse" opened. This would become the center of operations for the foreseeable future.

Averaging 110 callouts each year, it is the busiest independent lifeboat in the UK and is completely funded through donations. The crew members are on call, day and night, 365 days a year to help those in need yet they receive no government funding.

Although the FTC-GB is a small club we feel strongly about the value Humber Rescue adds to Emergency Response within the Humber area and are proud to offer our support to their charity fundraising.
