Local charity Foyle Search and Rescue have launched their 2016 calendar.

The calendar features pictures of all of the charity’s volunteers within various roles in the organisation, captured by Ray McCrossan of R.R. Media.

Ray said: “R.R Media are pleased to be the Photographer for the 2016 Foyle Search and Rescue Calendar, we started out with just an idea, just something to help raise funds for the hardest working volunteers in the city (if not the country).

“We captured the strength, determination and dedication that’s needed to do the job they do, from the swift water teams, walking teams, to the fundraisers and administration, they’re all fantastic!

We’re delighted that this calendar will give the public a chance to see another side of the organisation other than the news stories, the reality of their jobs, and the reality of the volunteers giving their time to protect people.”

Pat Carlin, Education & Media Officer said: “We’re really excited to have partnered on this project with RR Media and what better way to document our work and raise vital funds to help our charity make a difference to people living in and around the city.

“Our charity relies heavily on the help and support of our local community to enable us to continue our life saving work and we are sure that the amazing people of this city will support this fundraising campaign. “

Calendars can be purchased for £6 each from the base in Prehen or various shops within the city.

They will also be on stands at various locations and fairs in the coming weeks.
