About the team: Kinder Mountain Rescue Team (KMRT) is based in Hayfield, in the Peak District. Over twenty million people visit the Peak District annually and many of those come to see sights such as the Kinder Downfall and wander around the Kinder Edges. They might also see more than fifty men and women from Kinder Mountain Rescue Team responding to a callout or training. We rescue hikers, climbers, fellrunners, mountain bikers and the occasional sheep from the wild and high places of the Western Peak district as well as urban searches to assist police in looking for missing people.
What the donation would go towards: KMRT needs to be able to respond rapidly to callouts where life is at risk. In order to continue to do this crucial work, our base needs to be fit for purpose. We started the urgently needed renovation and extension of our existing hut this year but we need financial support and donations to purchase new equipment for the new base.
