A few Team members dropped in to wish Nick Piper all the best and to thank him for his fundraising challenge in support of the team, earlier today on Blakey Ridge.
Back in May this year we went to the aid of one the participants in the Boltby Bash Enduro mountain bike event. After treating Nick Piper at the scene we carried him (with the assistance of other participants and event staff) to an ambulance. Unfortunately Nick had broken his back in three places.
As a ‘thank you’ to the Team, he is raising money by undertaking a very testing bike ride – an attempt to ride nine different routes up to Blakey Ridge – he estimates that will be a total distance of 132km including 2,707m of climbing.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
