Our news


Mountain rescue team members are on call, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Over the last few years, we’ve recovered climbers from precipitous crags, reunited lost walkers with their pals and ensured injured and sick casualties have been treated and transported into vital hospital care.

We’ve searched for and found missing children and vulnerable adults, on and off the hills, whilst administering sympathetic support to their families.

We’ve searched river banks and swift water, aiding swimmers and kayakers – and a few who clearly never intended to get wet.

And we’ve rescued a frankly stunning number of dogs, cows, sheep and any number of other animals, from all manner of inaccessible places.

All this whilst continuing to practise and hone our skills in first aid and casualty care, technical ropework, water rescue, search management, maintaining our bases, equipment and vehicles – not to mention taking time to maintain our own fitness.

Mountain Rescue. So much more than mountains.


Moorhouse’s Brewery helps to raise cash for the team


On Wednesday the 17th of June 2015, the team were invited along to Moorhouse’s Brewery in Burnley.
Our invite was to attend their golf day, which was being held at their Accrington road site.

As part of the event, Moorhouse’s Brewery raffled off some great prizes, but one in particular, was a prize that money could not buy!

This was a ride up Pendle Hill in the Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue Teams ATV/buggy.

Our ATV is based at the bottom of Pendle Hill and is used to cut our response times in getting team members/equipment to any casualty at the top of the hill, who maybe in urgent need of medical attention.

So far, this event has raised £1700.00 for the team and we are still counting.

Team Leader Pete Goble attended the event, along with operational team member Jen Handley. Chontelle, Steve, Mary Ann, and Chris from out trainees also attended, who were all kindly fed and watered by Moorhouse’s .

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Moorhouse’s Brewery, in particular David Grant, Managing Director. He has pushed this event so hard and has helped to raise a phenomenal amount of money for the team. His passion, hard work and amazing support has made a real difference.

David and his team of people, are indirectly helping us to save lives, rescue injured people and helping us to search for the must vulnerable people in our communities.

We can’t put into words how much we appreciate your support.

Thank you so much Moorhouse’s Brewery.
