KMRT launches new vehicle fundraising campaign to ensure continued, time-critical and life-saving mobility
KINDER MOUNTAIN RESCUE TEAM
Kinder Mountain Rescue Team (KMRT) has been in existence since 1971, and 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).

As a self-funded organisation run by unpaid volunteers, and with annual running costs of over £30K, it is only through the kindness and generosity of the public are we able to keep doing what we do. So a very big thank you to Joseph Taylor who has set up a Just Giving page in memory...
