Hampshire & Berkshire 4×4 Response is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers who offer their time and their 4×4 vehicles during times of severe weather and other emergencies.
We offer services to support the Emergency Services, Local Authorities and other volunteer agencies, within the counties of Hampshire and Berkshire when non four wheel drive transport is compromised.
As a group we were founded in 2007 out of one man’s desire to provide assistance in his local community. Becoming fully operational in 2009, we have continued to grow from strength to strength becoming a registered charity in 2014.
Today we have over 100 trained Responders and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to our formal services we also support a number of charity events through the year by providing logistics, marshals, traction assistance and transport for officials and medical personnel.
We are a member of 4×4 Response UK which is the umbrella organisation for the national network of 4×4 Response Groups. Nationally, there are 33 organisations through out England, Wales and Scotland which form this network.
