A rescue from Swirral Edge last November was captured on film by a BBC crew flying with the RN Sea King helicopter that was involved. Footage, including Team Doctor John Ellerton, will feature in a Countryside 999 programme on BBC TV on Friday 22 March at 3.45pm, including a follow up interview with the casualty, Mr Peter Flint from Lincoln.
A Come Dine with Me-style meal at the Herdwick Inn in Penruddock raised £614, which local chef-for-the-night, Brian Firth, has kindly donated to Patterdale MRT. Thanks go to Brian, to Mark and Linda Wilmot at the Herdwick Inn and to the 80+ diners who supported the event.
Ray Griiffiths has presented a Supporters’ Shield to Lakeland Embroidery of Penrith as a thank you for the company’s support in kind to the Team and as an opportunity to promote this Easter’s Duck Race.
