Jon Rushton from North Yorkshire Police provides support, direction and guidance to the North Yorkshire voluntary rescue teams on behalf of the Force and additionally earlier this year joined us in his own time to take part in the Falcon Flyer Winter Challenge walk and raise funds for the team through sponsorship.

Jon took the opportunity of the quarterly North East Search and Rescue Association (NESRA) committee meeting last night to present us a cheque For almost £170 raised through the sponsorship. The picture shows John presenting the cheque to Ian Hugill from the team at Durham Police Headquarters.  Representatives of  Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team and Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team in the background.

While discussing support we would like to thank Rosedale Women’s Institute for their kind donation of £63 following a talk by two of our team members (David and John) on Monday evening. Apparently the tea and cakes were very good as well.
