Treating the casualty (Kendal MRT)

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.

1. Donations

Any donations will be warmly received, preferably by cheque, to the Association's Treasurer (address below).

You can also make an online donation on the justgiving website.

2. Gift Aid

If you wish to make a charitable Gift to LDSAMRA, please print out and complete a gift aid form. If you don't have Acrobat Reader, you can download it free from the Adobe website.

Please note that Gift Aid only applies if the donor pays income tax at the standard rate.

Please return this completed Gift Aid Declaration to the Association Treasurer:

Michael Saint
The Pennines, Appleby in Westmorland, Cumbria, CA16 6JW

3. Give As You Earn

This is a tax free way of giving to charities direct from your pay and many employers have agreed to co-operate. The donation is deducted from your pay before your tax deduction is calculated. The Association is registered with the Charities Aid Foundation.

If this appeals to you, please approach your employer with these details:
