Kinder Mountain Rescue Team
Although not strictly within the parish of Chinley, Buxworth and Brownside, the Community Association wish to support the Kinder Mountain Rescue team.
Kinder Mountain Rescue Team provides search and mountain rescue services in the English Peak District, Derbyshire.
We are based in Hayfield in the High Peak and our area includes Kinder Scout and west towards Stockport and Manchester.
We provide a 365 days a year, 24/7 search and mountain rescue service to walkers and climbers in the Dark Peak, as well as assisting the police with lowland search and rescue of vulnerable persons.
Although we provide a 24 hours a day, 365-day a year professional search and rescue service, the Kinder Mountain Rescue Team is made up of unpaid volunteers and we receive no government funding.
Fundraising, through appeals and donations, is an important part of what we do, so that we can provide the best possible search and mountain rescue service. The running costs of the mountain rescue team are around £14,000 per year. This money comes from general collections and donations.
We have recently launched an appeal for funds for a new Team Headquarters. Currently we run from a Garage in a pub car park. We have no toilet facilities, Washing or parking for Team Vehicles.
