The Team on Bankside Training
The Team is a Charity and has to raise all of the funds it requires itself. It currently takes about £30,000 to cover the Team’s operational expenses for one year. Over the last 6 years, mountain rescue teams across Scotland have received some support from the Scottish Government, although this is not sufficient to cover all of the expenses of running the team, and is not guaranteed for the future.
As a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), we work hard to raise as much money as we can from a variety of sources for our worthwhile and very necessary services. This is particularly important, as we have to raise funds through our own initiative. Financial help, from whatever source, and for however much someone can afford, is always gratefully received and put to good use.
