Mountain Rescue services are free to those in need because the teams are staffed by volunteers, who expect nothing more than a thank you. However, equipment, vehicles and maintaining a headquarters all cost money so those very same volunteers have to raise sufficient funds to maintain the service.
The 200 Club also contributes to team fund-raising by way of a monthly contribution to a prize fund with quarterly draws. Please click here for full information.
Fundraising is an art form, and our team’s activities are co-ordinated by Kevin Harding who has the difficult job of matching our team’s requirements with income! It costs approximately £40,000 per annum to run the team. There is a small fund-raising group which is always looking for new members, if you are interested please contact Kevin.
