One of the busiest mountain rescue teams in England
2020 is our 56th year
What we do
The Team supports the emergency services by providing a rescue service for those in danger in the hills and valleys around Ullswater. We are called out by the Police, Fire and Ambulance services, and by HM Coastguard for rescues on the lake.
The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen’s coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.
How you can help us
This year we are replacing our oldest Land Rover. In July 2020 we started an appeal to raise £85k to buy and convert a new Defender 110 Land Rover to a specialised Mountain Rescue vehicle.
To learn how you can help with this appeal and many other ways of supporting the team - read more.
