Meeting Mountain Rescue

I have met with the local Mountain Rescue team in Mold today to see the tireless work they undertake to keep us safe.

The Mountain Rescue team is composed of volunteers and they are responsible for assisting our other emergency services in supporting people who may be lost on the mountains, injured, or recovering vehicles stuck off-road.

The team operates on charitable donations and needs the support from people in the community to see it continue its work. Each year the Mountain Rescue team needs £25,000 a year to maintain its services.

Those wishing to donate to the Mountain Rescue team can do so in many different ways. Including:

Post: NEWSAR, PO Box 37, Mold, CH7 1ZS

I was pleased to meet with the local Mountain Rescue team to learn more about their duties. They do an extremely valuable job and make sure that we can enjoy our wonderful countryside safely, without fear.

It was very impressive to see how our local Mountain Rescue team prepare in advance of a mission. But they told me that this can only happen because of donations. They are a charitable organisation which deepens on volunteers and public support through donations. If you can, it would be fantastic if people give just a little to the Mountain Rescue team.”

Gerald Davison, from the Mountain Rescue team, said:

The Mountain Rescue needs £25,000 a year to maintain its service.

We have 80 call-outs a year, ranging from accidents to missing persons and car recovery. Without public support we cannot continue to function.
