CVSRT - July 2020

31 Jul 2020

At 20:42 on Friday 31st July, CVSRT were alerted to an incident that required our assistance near the stepping-stones in Burley in Wharfedale. The incident involving a 26yo lady with a suspected broken ankle is in the operational area of our neighbouring team, Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association (UWFRA), however they were already dealing with a separate incident so requested our assistance.

Ten members from CVSRT with six local UWFRA members and additional assistance from West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service were deployed. Once on-scene, an evacuation route was agreed and as there were enough MRT personnel to deal with the stretcher carry, it was decided to stand down the WYFRS crew. The casualty was packaged and evacuated on a wheeled stretcher to the ambulance for onward journey to hospital.

On the journey back to base via Keighley, CVSRT members in CM1 discovered an injured male on the ground who had been assaulted. No emergency services were on-scene, therefore team members pulled over to provide assistance to the casualty until the ambulance and police arrived.

Duration 4 hrs 3 mins

Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks
 
Today is the day Robert Batty will be taking on the the Yorkshire Three Peaks.  
 
The original plan was to complete the challenge overnight, however, the forecast isn’t kind and Robert has made the decision to set off earlier (2pm) to ensure he misses the worst of the weather.
 
The challenge is still high, navigating the 3 peaks will see Robert ascend around 1,585m during the 38.6km route and it will certainly be dark when he finishes.
 
Good to luck to Robert and a huge thank you for choosing Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) as your chosen charity for this challenge.  Almost £300 has been raised so far which is fantastic.

Fundraising

18 Jul 2020
Calder Valley is a wonderful area, filled with incredible people who are not only out in the hills testing themselves they are also out having fun in imaginative ways. Not only that they are actively raising much needed money for charities while doing so.
 
We are honoured that several of these amazing people have chosen Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) as their chosen charity.
 

A brief story of these fundraisers is below along with links that will allow you to read more, follow their progress and give you the opportunity to donate.  Each donation, no matter the value, will go a long way to help them reach their goals and help CVSRT too.

 

A Tri-Nation Tinyhorse Trotathon Trail Marathon Run

A tenacious team of three tinyhorses are currently competing in their own Tri-Nation Trotathon in support of Mountain Rescue (MR). 

The three tinyhorses - #GoAngus, #GoPageBoy and #GoTitan - will each represent a country and MR organisation and you can follow their progress and root for your favourite as they trot up the miles, and compete 'just for fun' on distance, time, and amount raised. 

Tinyhorse PageBoy, representing England, will be supporting his local MR team, Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team, PageBoy is generally super chill and a keen 'middle of the pack' social runner. He doesn't care too much for speed, just enjoying being out on the trails and paces along with his head held high.

Thank you to all the horses and runners taking part and go PageBoy.

One of our own team members, Paul Taylor, plans to ride, one wheel (on a unicycle!) on the canal towpath system across the country from Runcorn to Goole, passing over Summit all in order to raise much needed funds to provide equipment for CVSRT’s specialist Swift Water Rescue Technicians.  Paul will be making the journey over multiple days from July 2020.

Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks Night Walk

Every year since he was 14, Robert Batty has walked the Halifax Long March, raising money for a wide range of charities, both locally and nationally. 

Due to many events being cancelled as a result of the COVID19 Pandemic Robert has not been able to continue his 20 year record Halifax Long March walk. Not wanting to see the year pass by without setting his own unique way of making sure that he can carry on the tradition Robert has decided to take on the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks by night!

We would also like to take the opportunity to give a huge thanks to the Calder Valley Fell Runners Association, who recently gave the team a donation of £1,000.
 
Thank you to everyone out there who is supporting CVSRT, it really does mean a lot.  And good luck.
