One of the busiest mountain rescue teams in England
2021 is our 57th 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.
The Team is delighted to announce that an exceptionally generous donation has taken fundraising for our New Defender Land Rover Appeal to its £85,000 target.
