Earlier in the week four members from our Team and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team went to Hitachi Construction Machinery to receive a £2,000 donation.
Following a fundraising appeal over the last few months, both Teams are now celebrating having reached their collective fundraising target of £32,000 thanks to the Hebburn-based business, that now allows us to purchase a new digital radio system.
As charities, all #MountainRescueTeams rely heavily on support from the public and local businesses. As a Team we have also received other generous donations towards the new digital radio system, including £12,500 from The Henfrey Trust. The remaining money was raised thanks to contributions from members of the public and supporters of the Mountain Rescue through our Justgiving campaign.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us to raise the funds needed.
