Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue
Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue team is the search and rescue organisation for a large area of east Cumbria. The area includes the Howgills and part of the Pennines, and includes sections of the Pennine Way and Wainwrights Coast to Coast walks. The team is composed entirely of volunteers, willing to go out any time of day, 365 days a year.
Mountain Rescue teams are funded entirely by donations and bequests from members of the public. Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Team needs to raise around £30,000 a year just to cover running costs (things such as medicine, vehicle maintenance, training, electricity and heating). Replacing a Land Rover is even more expensive. We really do value your support.
