Teesdale & Weardale team donates vehicle to colleagues at Aberglaslyn

The Teesdale & Weardale search & mountain rescue team has donated one of it's vehicles which had become surplus to requirements to another mountain rescue team.
The coach built vehicle was purchased through charitable donations in 2003 and was used as a central control and communication station during searches and also doubled as an ambulance. During it's time with the team it covered over 50,000 miles and attended over 400 call-outs and events!  The team is about to announce the purchase of a much improved version of their search control vehicle , hence the old vehicle becoming redundant.
After much discussion and consultation it was decided to offer it free to other mountain or cave rescue teams who may be able to utilise it.
Aberglaslyn mountain rescue team who are based in Porthmadog north east Wales expressed an interest in having the vehicle to use as part of their water rescue unit, and so this week, two members of Aberglaslyn MRT drove from Wales to Durham to collect the vehicle.
After a long drive, Dave Evans & Paul Jones from AMRT were very happy to accept the keys from TWSMRT member Pete Morrison. By now the vehicle should be in it's new home in north Wales where we hope it will give many more years of valuable service !
