This week at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards held under the last Concorde to ever fly at Aerospace Bristol.
We were delighted to be recognised with a special Outstanding Contribution award given to the South West Mountain, Cliff and Cave Rescue Teams for the huge voluntary contribution to looking after visitors as well as their pets.
It’s great that the search and rescue teams in the region have been recognised with this award. Our volunteers give up a huge amount of their time to be part of the team fundraising, training and on callouts. It can be very disruptive to family and work life so this award is very much for them, their families and employers, as without them we wouldn’t be able to provide the life-saving service we do.”
The PenMCRA Teams recognised with the award were:
Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team – Ashburton
Cornwall Search and Rescue Team
Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team – Tavistock
North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team
Exmoor Search & Rescue Team
Devon Cave Rescue Organisation
Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England
Team members Rob and Kenneth attended the awards with representatives from the PenMCRA Teams.
