Please Support Us

Kinder Mountain Rescue Team (KMRT), is one of seven mountain rescue teams that operate within the Peak District National Park, as part of the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation (PDMRO).

Our 50 members operate on an purely voluntary basis and are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assist members of the public on the hill or in urban search and rescue situations.

We are almost exclusively funded by public donations, and all proceeds from fund raising go towards equipment and resources used on our call outs.

22: Callout – Saturday 18 July 2020

Whilst assisting an injured walker who was being stretchered off the Kinder Scout plateau (see callout 21), we met a large group of charity walkers who were cold, tired, lost and in need of assistance.

Two team members escorted them along the western edge path to our team vehicles at Edale Cross. Three of the walkers were unable to continue, so we drove them down to Hayfield in a Landrover. The remaining 24 walkers were escorted to the top of Jacob’s Ladder where they were out of the low cloud and directed back to Edale.

Our two team members then returned along the edge path to meet up with the stretcher party, to continue assisting with her evacuation.
