Help Us, To Help Others

BARB is a registered charity that relies solely on donations to run its service.

Its annual running costs are over £50,000. Unlike other rescue groups, no-one at BARB is paid – we are volunteers – so every penny raised is put towards rescues, training and maintaining our equipment.
