As with most civilian mountain rescue teams, the Kinder Mountain Rescue Team are all volunteers. We do not make any charge for our services, nor are we paid. We are a registered charity. We are funded entirely by charitable donations from the public, local organisations and companies. We receive no regular government funding or grants.
It costs around £25,000 per year to run the team. Much of our income to cover this comes from individuals, either by making a donation or by organising a fundraising event on our behalf. Whether large or small, we are grateful for all donations that help keep the team running.
WAYS TO HELP US
You can give to the team by sending a cheque, payable to ‘Kinder Mountain Rescue Team’ to:

Send us a Text – By texting KMRT40 £2 to 70070, you donate £2 to our team. Every penny goes directly to KMRT, and you won’t be charged any extra for the text. Further information here
NB. GIFT AID . For any donation large, small, one-off or regular we can claim back the basic rate tax that you paid to the Inland Revenue using the gift aid scheme. This increases the value of your contribution at no cost to yourself. All you need to do is print off a copy of our KMRT – Gift Aid declaration form, fill it in, and send it to our Treasurer. We will do the rest.
We can now raise money by recycling old mobile phones. If you have an old mobile phone that you can donate, please contact our fundraiser
