Support Us

Our team is made up entirely of volunteers, and we have to continually raise the money that we need to be able to keep the team operational, which amounts to over £35,000 every year. With the exception of a few ad-hoc grants for specific training or equipment, we receive no government funding. If you want to help to support Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team financially, there are a number of ways that you can do this:

One-off donations

You can make a one off donation online by going and follow the instructions for donating.

Sponsored events

Set-up a sponsorship form online (it’s really easy) If you’re participating in a sponsored event and would like help with getting sponsorship from friends and relatives this is a quick and easy way to do it. Just go to and follow the instructions for setting up a sponsor page.

Should you have difficulty using the above methods, please send us a message.


We are sponsored by a range of businesses, from a range of different industries. This includes local and national companies. Businesses can contribute in a variety of different ways, such as offering discounts on equipment and services, making donations of money or equipment. This can be on a regular basis or as a one-off. If you are interested in becoming a business sponsor and would like to know about ways that you could help the team, please send us a message.

Other Ways to Support the Team

In addition to financial support, there are many other ways you can support the team, as a friend, supporter, or even become a full team member.
