Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Seven Summits Challenge

The Holme Vallley Mountain Rescue  Team is launching a brand new event this year to help with our new headquarters project.

HVMRT Proposed new Headquarters Building

Faced with the closure of Marsden Fire Station, where we are currently based, the team now urgently needs to raise funds to build a new, dedicated headquarters building in the Robert Ashton Memorial Park, Meltham, to ensure we can continue to provide essential search and rescue services into the future.

Permission for the new building was finally secured last year after a long planning process but the second serious challenge facing the team is to raise the money required to fund the new build.

Huddersfield Sports Centre are generously supporting HVMRT to host a sponsored climbing event on Sunday 27th January 2013.

The Seven Summits Challenge event is open to any climber who wishes to participate, and we would particularly welcome climbing clubs and members of other Mountain Rescue Teams to join us for the event.

An element of healthy competition is planned, with climbers encouraged to enter as part of a team with the goal of climbing the furthest height and raising as much money as possible for the team.

Despite this though, the event will be relaxed and fun, and is open to climbers of all ages and abilities.

As an added bonus, Huddersfield Sports Centre have kindly offered 1 week of free climbing to all participants.

Each participant will also be presented with a t-shirt, specially designed for this event, which will be printed and donated by Xamax clothing.

All you need to do to take part is to register at Huddersfield Climbing Wall (within Huddersfield Sports Centre) before 20th January and raise over £50 for Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team.
