Outdoors enthusiasts who are well-equipped with winter jackets
and hiking boots may be among those willing to join a mountain rescue team in Wales.
The North East Wales Search and Rescue Service has advertised both for supporters to give it practical and financial help and for volunteers to take part in operations.
People who want to get out on the hills and help those in distress may apply for the latter role until December 31st.
Recently documented callouts to the service saw it search for missing persons in the Wrexham and Colwyn Bay areas.
And those taking part in rescues may do so in some challenging conditions in mountainous areas around the northern fringes of Snowdonia and areas just outside it like the Berwyns.
Mountain Rescue's patron Prince William is among those providing a service in north Wales, as he is based at RAF Valley on Anglesey, from where he pilots helicopters on missions to Snowdonia.
