A donation of in excess of £600 was raised by the Sunday Walking Club, Preston. We rescued one of their members from Fairfield and this was their way of saying thanks. It is much appreciated. Members then set off for a walk, complete with our ex-casualty, now recovered. It's great to hear a happy ending.

Fifteen members of the Norske Folkenhjelp spent two of their three days in England with us. On Thursday we showed them round our base, demonstrated some of our gear and explained how we worked. Some ventured up Helvellyn and on to Striding Edge to sample English mountain walking at its finest. On Saturday we organised a mock rescue exercise for them to take part in. A 'casualty' was treated and evacuated from steep ground high above Kirkstone Pass, and a wide range of our medical kit and technical kit was used.

A blast from the past..!

Thu, 9th May 2013, 22:01
We were recently recontacted by a casualty we rescued back in 2009. The gentleman suffered a very serious leg injury when he ws hit by rockfall in Eassy Gully on Pavey Ark. He was able to report that finally, 4 years later, he had been able to make it up to Easedale Tarn and Styhead Tarn. He had undergone pioneering surgery, and a lengthy rehabilitation. Great news!!
Brian Morgan

Brian was born in Preston in 1948 and first encountered the Lake District as a young boy when his father took him fishing there. Brian volunteered as a mountain rescuer at the age of 18 while serving an apprenticeship with British Aerospace. The quote from their internal paper, ‘Airframe’ states that he’d approached a mentor and told him that he’d “like to do something useful with my spare time”. He joined the South Ribble MRT, which became Bowland Pennine MRT. At that point, I doubt he had ANY idea what he was letting himself in for!
Tom Lister

A welcome visitor

Sat, 6th April 2013, 16:13
We had a very welcome visitor to our base yesterday by the name of Tom Lister. Tom was 13 when he fell from Jack’s Rake on Pavey Ark last July, sparking a huge rescue operation. Tom’s father said his son looked so badly injured after his fall that he thought he was dead. But the teenager is almost completely recovered from injuries he suffered in the 60m fall. It was great to see him on top form and for him to meet team members who had been involved in his rescue.
