Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team has sent a letter of thanks for the donation that the event made to their funds.  SMRT is entirely run by volunteers and depends on donations as it receives no public funding.  They are currently building a radio network to cover their operational area in Swaledale and Wensleydale, this will enable the team members to more effectively contribute to the rescue effort and provides their safety coverage as they operate in remote countryside which has limited mobile phone coverage.
