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.

43: Callout – Monday 2 November 2020

We were called to assist an exhausted walker on the western edge path of Kinder Scout. With only a rough location, both Kinder MRT and Buxton MRT were deployed by the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation (PDMRO) Duty Controller. Shortly afterwards a passing walker was able to assist the exhausted walker and gave us a grid reference. Buxton MRT were then stood down.

The good samaritan was able to warm and feed the walker, then lead him southwards to Edale Cross. Here he was met by one of our hill parties and a team vehicle, so we could bring him down to our base in Hayfield.

Many thanks to the passing walker for his help and we hope you were able to continue and enjoy your own walk.
