Support » Why we need you?
Derby Mountain Rescue Team, like all mountain rescue teams, is a voluntary organisation financed entirely by public donations. We need your support in order to continue to provide the high quality emergency service required.
Our services are free and all our team members are unpaid volunteers, but the team has significant running costs to be met in order to obtain and maintain the necessary equipment and vehicles and to provide the necessary training to ensure that all members of the team, both trainees and operational members, are fully capable of carrying out their roles.
You can access a vast range of online shops through our website, including major online retailers such as Amazon, Tesco, John Lews, Sky, HMV, ASDA, BT and hundreds more.Each purchase made through these links will not cost you a penny more but will earn a donation from the retailer to the team, which can be up to 5% of the purchase price.
