Coniston Mountain Rescue Team

Mountain Rescue across the UK is a voluntary organisation which relies solely on the support and generosity of the public; whether that be as an active member out on the fells; as a supporter with fund raising and/or admin activities or a friend providing donations.  Whether it is time or money given, without this the team simply could not function or be there when they are needed most.

Coniston Mountain Rescue Team was founded in 1947 and was the first team of its kind in the UK.  There are currently over 30 highly trained volunteers on the active list, turning out in all-weather 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and all funded solely by donations.

Coniston Mountain Rescue Team depends on your support and generosity. Thank you very much for all those who have contributed to help us help others.
