Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team

Who we are

Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team is based in the Scottish Borders.

The Team have 40 team members who are unpaid but very highly trained volunteers, on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to render assistance to lost or injured people in mountainous or remote areas. The Team covers an area of around 2500 square miles made up of the heritage Lothian and Borders Police area to the West of the A68 trunk road.

The Team is a Charity and has to raise all of the funds it requires itself. It currently takes about £30,000 to cover the Team's operational expenses for one year.

As an independent local charity, we work hard to raise as much money as we can from a variety of sources for our worthwhile and very necessary services. This is particularly important, as we have to raise funds through our own initiative. Financial help, from whatever source, and for however much someone can afford, is always gratefully received and put to good use.

The Team is part of the network of Mountain Rescue Teams affiliated to the Mountain Rescue Committee of Scotland.
