MOUNTAIN RESCUE ENGLAND AND WALES

THE AIM HIGHER CHALLENGE

It costs approximately £35,000 per year just to remain operational.

This amount is raised entirely through donations from the community and local business. All donations go directly towards keeping a roof over our heads, maintaining our emergency response vehicles, purchasing essential life-saving equipment and training team member’s new skills.

We receive no direct funding from the council or government.
Thank you for helping us to help you.
