Get Involved, The Team Needs You

Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team relies solely on the very kind donations of the general public, support from local businesses and occasionally grants which we can apply for.

The team operates 24 hours a day 365 days a year, so we need your help to keep the team at a state of operational readiness.

Team members give up their spare time to attend training events and operational callouts, be it a rescue that can last anywhere from 45 minutes to 5 hours or a search that can last from 2 hours on to a few hours or a few days. This has an effect on the team members and their very committed family's. As well as the operational & training commitments, we currently dedicate what little time we have left to fundraising.

Currently we need to raise around £30,000 a year to keep the team operational, this includes fuel, maintenance of the vehicle fleet, maintenance of medical equipment, technical rescue equipment, maintenance of the team base, to mention a few. On top of that we need to raise funds to replace our ageing vehicle fleet, complete the base refurbishment and also raise funds to replace PPE (Personnel Protective Equipment).

Fundraising events vary from street collections, summer fetes, in store collections throughout our operational area, raffles, country shows or indeed anywhere we can get support from.

We are currently seeking volunteers to help us run or take part in our fundraising efforts and would very much appreciate this kind of support.

With the time you have, this could take the form of organising and running your own fund raising events or just helping out the team in some of the initiatives that have already been set up, we will of course come along and support you in such events.

So if you can help us and feel you can offer this type of support to a worthy cause, then please contact us in the first instance at the following e mail address fundraisers@clevelandmrt.org.uk
