Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have walked the Yorkshire 3 peaks before, a good few times as a challenge or training for a challenge. So it wasn't an option for a sponsored event...that was until my friend Dan suggested doing it 5 times in 5 days...So on the 14th September 2022 Dan and I will set off on day one of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks 5x5. We will repeat this until Sunday 18th and our 5th trip around the 3 peaks.

I love the outdoors and enjoy many happy hours outside. One of the reasons I enjoy it is the safety of knowing that a bunch of highly training people are willing to give up their time away from work, family and their own hobbies to come to my aid if needed. 

So I wanted to give something back to the wonderful Mountain Rescue teams and also to thank my good friends Tim and Howard  for all they have done for Calder Valley Search and Rescue team and also to everyone involved in the Mountain Rescue teams across England and Wales..

So who are Mountain Rescue England and Wales?

There are 49 volunteer mountain rescue teams and eight regional bodies in England and Wales, across nine geographical areas, and we are here to help them deliver the best possible care to their casualties. We can’t do that without your support. Thanks to you, we can provide and maintain the highest standards in casualty care, technical rope rescue and swiftwater rescue. And we can provide key items of kit to teams and help keep their vehicles on the road. And thanks to your legacies, we can plan for the future to ensure this valuable community service remains voluntary and free to the casualty.
