Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I have been a member of the Assynt Mountain Rescue Team since December 1999. I have been on numerous callouts and been involved in trying to save lives. I am still a member of the Assynt Mountain Rescue team and have clocked up about 13 years of voluntary service. I joined the mountain rescue team because I like the values of mountain rescue - unpaid volunteers helping out those in need. I hope that if I am ever in need in the mountains then someone will give up some of their time to help me.
Mountain Rescue is a voluntary emergency service and needs financial support to fund training, replace valuable life saving equipment, run vehicles, etc. The Assynt Mountain Rescue Team covers one of the largest areas of any mountain rescue team in Scotland and there is such a low population density in the area that it is very hard to raise funds locally.
I am attempting to climb Mount Everest as a personal challenge and to raise funds for charity.
I have been involved in supporting the Assynt Mountain Rescue Team for more than a third of my life, please give generously to support this team.
You can follow my progress on Everest in the Spring of 2013 on www.bob-kerr.com
