A ‘Grand’ Gesture From The Police To Moffat Moutain Rescue Team

Officers from Dumfries Community Policing Unit recently presented a cheque for £1000 to members of Moffat Mountain Rescue.

Over recent years the Canteen fund at Loreburn Street Police Station managed to raise some funds therefore it was decided to donate some money to Moffat Mountain Rescue.

A spokesperson for the police stated “Moffat Mountain Rescue are volunteers but are regularly called out by Dumfries & Galloway Police Division to assist with missing people, those lost or injured in the hills or during incidents such as flooding or bad weather.
We are always grateful for the assistance they provide.

Moffat Mountain Rescue Team has been coming to the aid of walkers, climbers and members of the local community, from toddlers to the elderly since 1969.

The team primarily covers the eastern area Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland, a large rural area which offers a wide variety of recreational fun and attracts outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and level of ability.

The Team is a registered Scottish charity (No.SCO07510). We continue to rely on the generosity of individuals and companies to maintain our equipment and fund training. If you would like to make a donation to the team, please go to the donation page.
