Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team had some very bad luck at the end of 2020 and we find ourselves having to raise money pretty quickly.
We had to retire one of our operational vehicles very unexpectedly, and we are now a critical front line blue light response vehicle short. The team experienced it’s busiest year ever in 2020 and the new year promises to be even more demanding, especially while we are missing a vehicle.
Our target of £40k will allow us to buy a nearly new, super-capable, all-terrain, Land Rover Discovery which will be our new primary off-road vehicle for the next 10 years or more. We are asking the generous business community, and good people who want to support the essential life-saving volunteer work of mountain rescue, to come to our aid and help us reach our crucial target.
There are a number of ways that individuals and organisations can help.
Fancy having a name on the rear windscreen? We are offering a truly unique gift opportunity for friends or family to be included on our ‘window of well wishers’. You’ll proudly sit alongside fellow donors for the whole of the vehicles operational life with the team. That’s potentially a 10 year gift to a loved one and a great help to the life-saving work of Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team. Any pledges on our Crowdfunding page of greater than £100 will be included in our ‘window of well wishers’.
For any businesses that wish to support the team we have a number of sponsorship packages available, so Help Mountain Rescue and your own business at the same time…
In addition to being a crucial part of the team’s work, saving lives in remote and hostile places, the new vehicle will also offer a fantastic opportunity for businesses!!
See our donor packages MRT-Vehicle-Sponsorship-Prospectus.pdf for details of how your business logo could be proudly positioned on the vehicle for the whole of it’s operational life with the team. That’s potentially up to 10 years of publicity for your business.
In addition to space on the vehicle, we are offering other exciting opportunities for businesses including appearing on our website, photo opportunities, social media coverage, and even the chance to get staff involved in our training exercises which could double-up as novel networking opportunity with your fellow business supporters.
