November and December saw ten call outs for the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team, including a Christmas Eve search for a missing person in Huddersfield.

September and October 2019 saw eight call outs in total: four in September and four in October. Half of them were to support the Police and half were to assist the Yorkshire Ambulance Service.

Following a break-in which happened during the Summer the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team was approached by Carlton Alarms with the offer of the donation of an alarm system for our HQ building.

The Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team would like to express its immense gratitude to West Yorkshire Police chiefs who came together to donate £30,000 to help us buy and equip a new Mobile Incident Control Vehicle.

August was a busy month for the team, with nine call outs, including a major incident stand-by to support the Toddbrook Reservoir crisis.

July was another quiet month for the team with only two incidents recorded, both in the first week of the month.

June was a quiet month for the team with only three incidents recorded, two of which were linked to the same missing person.

During the Spring we carried out a Crowdfunding campaign to help raise money for a new control vehicle for the team. We raised £11,098 with the help of 132 supporters.
