During the last six months, Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team have been extremely busy with our 50th Anniversary celebrations and numerous fundraising events. The team has also attended 46 callouts from March to August, which equates to 2416 voluntary hours and 30 members of the community rescued.
In March we had chance to catch up with BBC Look North (Yorkshire) presenters Harry Gration and Paul Hudson during their grueling three-legged challenge for Sport Relief. They looked thrilled to receive a 50th Anniversary branded neckwear!! Perfect for wiping the sweat from their brows!! These are still available from our shop and make a perfect gifts for xmas.

This year CVSRT has been very fortunate to be named ‘Charity of the Year’ by a number of local organisations. The team is extremely grateful for this continued support, which allows us to continue to provide the essential life-saving service to those in most need. Without your help, we’d be lost.
At the time of going to press, we announced that our 2017 Recruitment was open and accepting applications from individuals wishing to be considered for our next training programme (expected to start early 2017). So if you meet our essential criteria and you’re feeling inspired and want to get involved, please visit our website to apply.
Remember we are available for callouts 24/7, 365 days a year, so we would especially like to hear from anyone who has flexible working hours and availability during the daytime, and ideally lives nearby our bases in Todmorden, Mytholmroyd and Copley. Good luck!
