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.

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!!
