Mercedes-Benz support vehicle

Just over two-years ago Mercedes-Benz of Teesside provided the Team with an on-loan Mercedes GLC 4×4. Since then the car has been a huge help to us – by transporting our search dogs, supporting our search & rescue operations and as a key resource for our support members’ fundraising activities. In recent weeks the car has been at the forefront of our efforts to support local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, for example being used to delivery PPE to care services.

Today we took delivery of a replacement on-loan vehicle; this time a new Mercedes GLB 4×4, a versatile and compact SUV ideally suited to our needs.Mark Weedy, the General Sales Manager, handed over the car to Kath Pincott (Ops Support) and S&R members Claire Starkey & Gary Clarke. Claire’s trainee search dog ‘Bracken’ was on hand to give his approval.We are delighted that Mercedes-Benz of Teesside are continuing to support their local Mountain Rescue Team in such a generous way.

The previous car proved to be invaluable for the Team and via our search, rescue and support work the car has, in turn, enormously benefited the local community. So we’re looking forward to making the best use of this latest opportunity – thank you to Sytner Mercedes-Benz of Teesside!
