Chris Sanderson, chairman of trustees for the team was delighted to announce that an exceptionally generous donation had taken the fundraising effort to its final target. The donation was in memory of a late family member who loved the Lake District and highly valued the work of the team. DECEMBER: PATTERDALE TEAM REACHES £85,000 TARGET FOR LAND ROVER DEFENDER APPEAL

‘This is truly a great accolade to receive during these unprecedented times,’ said Kev. ‘At the start of the pandemic it was very challenging to manage the changes to our normal procedures, keeping abreast of the guidelines and the implementation of PPE. I feel honoured and privileged to lead the Bowland Pennine team, who have risen to the challenges in maintaining our service to the community under these exceptional circumstances.’ Team leader Kev Camplin accepted the awards on behalf of the team, in recognition of exceptional voluntary service to the community during the Covid-19 pandemic, from the High Sheriff of Lancashire, Mrs Catherine Penny.

‘Recent activities such as sales of the Ullswater Valley calendar and an online auction associated with the new Terry Abraham Helvellyn film had already taken us to our halfway fundraising milestone,’ said

chairman of trustees, Chris Sanderson. ‘Now this tremendous support from one family has enabled us to meet our target in full, a year ahead of schedule. We are looking forward to the completion of the modification work on the new vehicle and its entry into operational service early in the New Year. ‘On behalf of everyone associated with the Patterdale team — members, trustees, supporters and fundraisers alike — I’d like to thank all those who contributed to the appeal. Its success underlines the importance of donors, both large and small, to the continued delivery of a fully supported voluntary rescue service.’
