Local company donates $10,000 to Grimsby Auxiliary Marine Rescue Unit
The Grimsby Auxiliary Marine Rescue Unit is another $10,000 closer to replacing the aging inflatable rescue boat.
NRB Inc. donated the funds as part of GAMRU's ongoing campaign to replace to fast response vessel.
To date, more than $80,000 has been raised, but it's still a far cry from the eventual goal of $300,000 needed to buy a new, purpose built fast-response rescue boat.
“Raising the kind of funds we need for a new vessel is a long, slow process. It can be frustrating but this kind of donation really propels our campaign forward,” said GAMRU unit leader Bob Gordon. “A donation like this from a respected local company like NRB is very, very gratifying.”
Last season, GAMRU South Shore Search and Rescue experienced one of their busiest years ever, taking part in 28 rescue missions.
