Connect Yorkshire member Lee Stones, who took on the role of fundraising officer just before the first lockdown, needs the help of the generous business community, and good people to come to their rescue

Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team had some very bad luck at the end of 2020 and we find ourselves having to raise money pretty quickly.

“We had to retire one of our operational vehicles very unexpectedly, and we are now a critical front line blue light response vehicle short. The team experienced it’s busiest year ever in 2020 and the new year promises to be even more demanding, especially while we are missing a vehicle.

Our target of £40k will allow us to buy a nearly new, super-capable, all-terrain, Land Rover Discovery which will be our new primary off-road vehicle for the next 10 years or more. We are asking the generous business community, and good people who want to support the essential life-saving volunteer work of mountain rescue, to come to our aid and help us reach our crucial target.”
