Penrith Mountain Rescue Team are celebrating their 60th year of operation in 2019.
In order to help us celebrate this, the Friends of Penrith MRT have produced a Calendar featuring the team. Each month showcases some of the different skills that the Team use and the environments in which we operate.
The past 60 years have seen our team involved in rescue efforts on the Pennines, the central fells of The Lake District and in urban centres such as Carlisle and York. We have been active in major incidents that have affected the whole County such as 'Storm Desmond' and 'The Beast from The East'. In order to operate as we do, the team train regularly, practising their skills in the types of conditions that we are likely to be working in when attending an incident.
The aim of the calendar is to allow our supporters to see what we do whilst helping us to raise funds so that we can remain operational. The majority of the Team's funding comes from the generosity of our supporters, as we receive no Government funding. This is something that we are very grateful for as it means that we can continue to help those in need 365 days a year, 24/7.
Payment for the calendars is accepted via Paypal, please click the link below to purchase.
