The Arb industry's own disaster relief organisation - DART International UK - continues to make a positive impact around the world. Building on previous deployments to Vanuatu and Northern Samar, the Charity carried out a successful deployment to Sierra Leone in February this year, delivering training and equipment as part of an ongoing food security and forestry conservation programme.
DART continues to attract interest and support from response team volunteers, with 12 new members completing pre-deployment training in Cornwall only last month. Much of what's been achieved is thanks to the ongoing financial and equipment backing of industry corporate sponsors, none more so than Fletcher Stewart/Stein of Stockport who have given unwavering support to the project.
If you're interested in finding out more, why not contact us via our website or social media pages. Alternatively, come along and speak to one of our volunteers at the Arb Association's APPGHG event in Westminster on the 18th July or at the Woodfest Country Show in North Wales 29-30 July.
