To enter the Easter bank holiday in style, the HALCO team took part in a riddle-solving Easter Egg hunt to raise money for Longtown Mountain Rescue Team.
Operating under Mountain Rescue (England and Wales) the coordinating body Longtown Mountain Rescue Team is one of 48 teams operating within nine mountain rescue regions. Each team is an independent charity responsible for their own fundraising and management. The team consists solely of volunteers from all walks of life, with a wide variety of occupations, who give up their free time to combine a love of the outdoors with serving the community, assisting people in distress.
This commitment means they can be on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as well as attending the training required to increase and maintain the necessary skills needed to operate.
We were honoured to welcome two key members of the Longtown Mountain Rescue Team to our HALCO Head Office for the afternoon. The event involved the teams working together to crack the riddles and try to locate the hidden eggs.
Congratulations to Team Hare for being the winning team!
