NKHC has decided to make donations this year to 2 more mountain rescue teams. These teams are independent charities staffed by dedicated and highly trained volunteers.
- Langdale and Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team who deal with over 100 incidents per year. They are a self-funding dedicated team of ‘professional volunteers’ coming from all walks of life, united in their love of mountains and their wish to help their fellow mountaineers in trouble.
- NEWSAR – North East Wales Search and Rescue is a mountain rescue team operating in North and East Wales and mainly covers the counties of Flintshire, Denbighshire, Conwy, Wrexham, Powys and parts of Wirral and Cheshire.
In 2014 donations were made to:
- Wasdale MRT which has been assisting people in the western fells for almost 50 years. It is one of twelve Teams in the Lake District Search and Rescue Association.
- Ogwen Valley Moutain Rescue Organisation based near Capel Curig and is in its 50th anniversary year.
