Outdoor retailer Go Outdoors supports Mountain Rescue England and Wales – and consequently teams throughout the two countries – through the sales of support badges and national collection boxes in all their stores.
They've also established the Pennies scheme at their tills. This 'electronic money box' gives customers the opportunity to add a small donation (pennies, even) to their credit card bill at the checkout – the digital equivalent of throwing loose change in a box on the counter.
Digital mapping software company Mapyx Limited has been working for some time with the ICT subcommittee to develop SARMAN, a ‘search and rescue management’ solution. The system provides a search management and mapping tool that encapsulates the way search management is undertaken by teams.
We provide the search theory and stats, Mapyx provides the technical GIS skill and the finance to develop the system — free of charge, which represents a contribution from Mapyx of many thousands of pounds. Last year saw SARMAN training rolling out across the teams and, ultimately, there will be a central network. The system is even being picked up now by the police and RAF search managers.
The Financial Management Bureau (FMB), offer individual cover for climbers so they can enjoy their chosen sport knowing they are fully protected. Based in the Lake District, they are keen outdoor-types themselves and appreciate that team members are volunteers, giving up their time and energy to help those in need. They have pledged to support team members everywhere by donating 15% of their fee to Mountain Rescue England and Wales. So now you can get covered and support us at the same time!
