Supporting Charities

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

As part of our social responsibility pledge, the FTC-GB Club is committed to supporting local and regional charities in the UK.

We donate 50% of annual profits to charity and for 2023, the FTC-GB committee have selected Humber Rescue to be the beneficiary of the FTC-GB donation.

 

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.
