Tramore Cliff & Mountain Rescue Association, Co. Waterford

Every time you shop at Tesco you’re doing your part to help thousands of local causes across the country. Since starting our Community Fund in 2014, the Tesco Community Fund has been able to donate nearly €2million to over 5,000 of these deserving causes, thanks to you.

Since 1978, the Tramore Cliff Rescue team has come to the assistance of those in danger around the cliffs of Tramore and surrounding areas. The group of dedicated volunteers was formed following a tragic accident along a section of Tramore’s cliff, in which a young man lost his life.

After years of devoted service to the local community, the Tramore Cliff Rescue team has built up new skills and expanded its expertise to take part in mountain rescue operations.  The team now responds to mountain rescue incidents as well as any cliff incidents in the South East of Ireland.

The dedicated volunteers from Tramore Cliff & Mountain Rescue used their funding from Tesco Community Fund to buy new equipment such as ropes and harnesses, helping them carry out safe and speedy rescues in difficult situations. Safety first!
