Become a Friend

Team exercise on hillThe Friends of Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Team play a vital role in the functioning and financial well-being of the team.

Friends are often people who would like to support the team in some significant way but who, for some reason or other, cannot be full team members. This may, for instance, be because of other commitments, meaning they would not be able to undertake all the training or be available for call-outs.

The Friends of the team undertake a number of important tasks, which include:

  • Administrative and backup support
  • Being 'casualties' on team exercises
  • Help with collections and fundraising
  • Specialist training
Being a Friend of the team also has a pleasurable side. We try to have at least a few social events throughout the year, when the team and the Friends can get together when not fundraising or getting wet on a hill.

If you would like to become involved as a Friend of the team please contact David Stewart - if you use the 'Contact us' form above he'll get your message!
