Rescue Round 2 Success

Rescue Round 2 Success

An amazing weekend for the team. Rescue Round 2 was completed in under 44hrs by Dave and Kath.

They visited all the bases within the Lakes in a continuous loop.

In between they Kayaked Ullswater, Bassenthwaite and Coniston.

Ran over Helvellyn & Scafell Pike.

Biked up Honister, across Birker fell just to mention a few.

All achieved with support from team members, supporters, families and friends.

And they made it back in time to be interviewed at the Mountain Festival

We would like to thank our fellow Lake District teams who let us use their bases for sleep and comfort breaks.
