That winner, the Patterdale team in the Lake District, then in turn gifted it to the Glossop Mountain Rescue Team
We needed to plan for the event the helicopter could not reach us, and a call for extra manpower from Oldham Mountain Rescue Team and Glossop Mountain Rescue Team
Up to 20 members of the Kinder and Glossop Mountain Rescue Team
were also called out.
The team which recruits mainly from the Holme Valley was first called out at midday to help Glossop Mountain Rescue Team
with a 15-year-old girl who had fallen and injured her lower left leg at Bleaklow Head, the second highest hill in the Peak District.
Working alongside Glossop Mountain Rescue Team
and with the support of the Derbyshire police helicopter, the missing walker was found safe but very tired on the northern edges of Bleaklow.
Other successful dog teams were: Paul Taylor with Springer Spaniel Toby from Glossop Mountain Rescue team
and Nick Smith from Buxton mountain Rescue Team with his Border Collie Zak, who was also awarded the "Novice Shield" for outstanding performance on the assessment course.
