Peaks rescue team gets £10,000 grant

The Peak District-based Buxton Mountain Rescue Team has received an early Christmas present from The Big Lottery Fund – a £10,000 grant.

It will go towards the £50,000 cost of replacing a specialist incident control vehicle, which is hoped will be on the road in spring.

Peter Farrer, fundraising officer, said: “This is marvellous news at a time when income to the appeal was slowing down.

“The team is really grateful for the grant.”
