We have various items of merchandise which can be provided to support any fundraising which you can purchase by contacting the fundraising officer. These items vary but usually consist of items such as badges, pens, fridge magnets, wrist bands etc.

Many shops and businesses in County Durham look after collecting boxes for us and if you are a local business owner who could support us with this we would love to hear from you.

These events tell people about the team and its work and also help promote safe practice in the hills and mountains.

Finally thank you very much to all our supporters past and present!
