Park Foot raises £500 for the Team
Staff and visitors at Park Foot Caravan and Camping Park have raised over £350 for Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team with a series of fundraising raffles to win giant World Cup bears. Owners, Barbara Allen and Fiona Bell have then made that figure up to £500.
“We have been supporters of the Team for many years,” said Manager, Mark Foudy, “and wanted to see if we could raise some extra funds with the raffles. We have thousands of visitors each year and many of them go out walking or cycling in the area so we are very aware of the demands put on our local Rescue Team. If we can support the work of these committed volunteers with a bit of fun for our visitors, that’s great.”
John Williams, Patterdale Mountain Rescue Association Chairman and team member, Gillian Mininch received a cheque for £500 from Mark, his daughter, Lauren, and staff member, Helen Smith at Park Foot on Friday (13 August).
“We get tremendous support from so many businesses around the valley, including the campsites, caravan parks, hotels and guest houses,” said John. “This donation is an opportunity to thank the team at Park Foot in particular for all their work and effort on our behalf.”
