We appreciate you being there for us as much as we are there for you.

Please help us!

All the teams rely almost totally on donations received from the public. Charitable gifts are always gratefully received, either to specific teams direct, or to mountain rescue generally.

If you wish to financially support the Mountain Rescue Service in the Lake District, the Association will be pleased to receive your donation. All donations and legacies received by LDSAMRA are used to support the work of the 12 teams in the region. If you prefer to donate to one specific Team, the Association will pass any such donations on. Alternatively, you may contact the Team direct.

There are several ways of assisting, some more financially advantageous than others.


Any donations will be warmly received, preferably by cheque, to the Association’s Treasurer:

John Bamforth
43 Rheda Park, Frizington, Cumbria, CA26 3TA

You can also make an online donation on the Justgiving or Virgin Money Giving websites.
