Please Support Us

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).

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