The journey so far

Derby Mountain Rescue Team urgently needs a new base. Our current ‘base’ is an old garage, prone to flooding, has limited space for our emergency response vehicles and equipment, no training or meeting room and no hub for gathering as a team to debrief and de-stress after sometimes quite arduous and harrowing call-outs.

Our new base will help us to help you – when you most need us!

The team has raised £407K to date, purchased some land and obtained planning permission to build a purpose-built base that will meet all our needs. To complete the project, we still need a further £300K to secure this much-needed new home.
