Pub event boosts Mountain Rescue Team

Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Team has received a cash boost from a pub fundraising evening, which may boost those who like to go walking in east Cumbria.

A musical evening at the town's King Arms pub in late July raised nearly £300 for the team, it has been revealed, with owners Jeff Scott and Janet Cross handing over the funds.

Such money could be used for vital equipment to help those who may have suffered accidents or got lost on the fells.

Being well equipped for walks through having good hiking boots to avoid ankle injuries, waterproofs to stay dry and warm and Ordnance Survey maps to help navigate may all help avoid call-outs and thus reduce the strain on Mountain Rescue team resources.

The teams' area of operations covers part of the Coast-to-Coast route, with the most recent call-out concerning a female walker who slipped and broke her leg while attempting the trek this week.

Devised by Alfred Wainwright, it stretches from St Bees Head in Cumbria to Robin Hood's Bay in North Yorkshire.
