Derby Mountain Rescue Team urgently needs a new base. Our current ‘base’ is an old garage, prone to flooding, has limited space for our emergency response vehicles and equipment, no training or meeting room and no hub for gathering as a team to debrief and de-stress after sometimes quite arduous and harrowing call-outs.
Our new base will help us to help you – when you most need us!
The team has raised £407K to date, purchased some land and obtained planning permission to build a purpose-built base that will meet all our needs. To complete the project, we still need a further £300K to secure this much-needed new home.
11 million people visit the Peak District every year. If we can reach 60,000 of these people and each of them donates just £5, the Team can build its new base and continue to fulfil its vision as ‘a leading search and rescue team in the community’.
So please, if you are a visitor to the Peak District or anywhere in the great outdoors, help this amazing, life-saving team and donate just £5 now.... and then share this page as widely as you possibly can, to help us reach our target.
Together we can do this!
Thank you so much
