Registered Charity No 1020136 (Association)

Registered Charity No 1170178 (CIO)

The team relies almost totally on donations received from the public. Charitable gifts are always gratefully received. As well as needing money to replace ageing equipment and vehicles we require funds for more mundane costs such as utilities, fuel and maintenance.

1. Donations

  • You can donate online at JustGiving.
  • You can post a cheque to the team’s treasurer, the address is at the bottom of this page. Your donation will go further if you complete a Gift Aid form.

2. Gift Aid

Gift Aid allows a charity to reclaim income tax (at the standard rate) on all donations made by tax-payers. Please download, complete and return this form with any donations made by cheque or standing order. JustGiving has an option to allow gift aid to be reclaimed.

3. Give As You Earn

This is a tax free way of giving to charities direct from your pay and many employers have agreed to co-operate. The donation is deducted from your pay before your tax deduction is calculated. The Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team is registered with the Charities Aid Foundation.

If this appeals to you, please approach your employer with these details:

4. Bankers Order

Why not let your bank do the work for you – just print out this form and send it to the Team Treasurer.

Many more people are now making provisions in their wills for Mountain Rescue. This thoughtful gesture is helping to ensure the future financial security of Mountain Rescue Teams.

Thank you very much for your support, the team would not be able to function without it!

    We (David Holly and Joshua) were assisted off The Corridor Path on 10th September 2018 by a group of young men undertaking their Three Peaks Challenge and the WMRT who had provided location assistance and also met and escorted us off the mountain ensuring we were all safe and well.

    The three young men had yet to climb Snowden but nevertheless would not leave us until they were reassured we were safely down. They completed their challenge in 23 hours and 47 minutes with 13 minutes to spare.

    It is with grateful thanks to them and WMRT that I have made a donation of £350 in their names as a token of our gratitude.

      Hi David, Holly and Joshua,

    Hallo Mountain Rescuers

    Just to say that St Bees Priory carol-singers raised funds for your organisation on 2 evening carolling round St
    Bees before Christmas.
    Funds are shared between 2 charities – yours and Shelter for the Homeless – for those lost on the streets and those lost on the mountains! You will receive £218 by cheque soon.

    Best Wishes, R. McAndrew ( Churchwarden & carol-singing organiser ).

    I am planning to take part in a 10K run in April to raise funds for your team in memory of my late husband whose fall on Scafell Pike you attended in 2007.
    My brother and daughter will also be running with me to support me (I am not a runner!!)
    I wondered if you have any t-shirts we could buy to wear on the day to help publicise the fantastic work you do.
    If you could send me details that would be great.

      Hi Judith,

      Thank you for getting in touch and good luck with the run. I have passed your enquiry on to our Treasurer who will get back to you.

      Hi Judith

      Richard (our treasurer) tried to reply by email but the address you gave seems not to work. Here is his reply.

      Many thanks for your kind offer to raise funds for us in April.  We are just about out of supporter’s T shirts but there might be 2 or 3 left.  I will have a look – what sizes would you need?  If this fails we do have an arrangement with Coniston Corporate Embroidery and they will send you a T shirt direct but let me see what we have in stock first.
