Why Calder Valley’s ‘mountain rescue’ team deserves your support – The Yorkshire Post says
Yet, while their call-outs have increased as a result of more people venturing out during the Covid-19 lockdown, their income has fallen, just like the proverbial stone, because of the cancellation of fundraising events.
It is why The Yorkshire Post urges ramblers, and other outdoor users, to answer the organisation’s SOS appeal for financial help in order to maintain its lifesaving work – and the challenge of carrying out rescue missions in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
Now one of the largest mountain rescue teams in England and Wales, the terrain covered by the team’s volunteers is still formidable, even if it is not officially classified as being mountainous, and they should never be taken for granted.
