About this cause
We exist to help lost, injured, or distressed persons in and around the North York Moors. We spend time in the local community educating people to be safe in the hills and what to do if something goes wrong. We are 100% funded from fundraising and donations. Our objectives are to relieve suffering and distress amongst persons affected by accidents, natural hazards, or mental health problems.
How this cause brings people in the community together
During the pandemic, people's mental health has been of great concern to us. We regularly search for missing vulnerable adults, on and off the hills, whilst providing support to their families. Some searches can last several days and so having the best communications facilities is essential in managing the search effectively and ensuring we make the best possible effort to find the missing person.
