DONATING TO WASDALE MOUNTAIN RESCUE TEAM

Registered Charity No 1020136

The team  relies almost totally on donations received from the public. Charitable gifts are always gratefully received.

If you wish to financially support our Lake District Mountain Rescue Service which covers the Wasdale and Eskdale valleys, we would be very pleased to receive your donations.  The Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team is totally committed to improving our rescue capability, whether it is by replacing equipment or by more effective communications and training.  There are several ways of assisting, some more financially advantageous than others.   

 

                

1.    Donations

Any donations will be warmly received, preferably by cheque, to the Team's Treasurer (address below).

3.    Gift Aid

Gift Aid was brought in to play at the last Budget (2000) to make donating easier for the general public and to try to lessen the impact that the National Lottery has had on charitable donations in general.

Existing Deeds of Covenant are replaced by Gift Aid, but will continue until their expiry dates.

If you wish to make a charitable Gift to Wasdale MRT, please print out and complete the appended form.

Please note that Gift Aid only applies if the donor pays income tax at the standard rate.

4.    Give As You Earn

This is a tax free way of giving to charities direct from your pay and many employers have agreed to co-operate. The donation is deducted from your pay before your tax deduction is calculated. The Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team is registered with the Charities Aid Foundation.

If this appeals to you, please approach your employer with these details:
