Donate to the Team
Support Galloway Mountain Rescue Team by donating securely via Everyclick.
It costs over £40 000 per year to run the team, with additional 'big spends' such as the replacement of vehicles.
We have an active Everyclick account to which you can link your fundraising event and raise money on our behalf. We really appreciate your support.
You can also make a donation now on our Everyclick Fundraising page using the button opposite.
- We will never do door to door collections and we will never ask you to share any bank details with us when we are out in the community or by phone.
- If we are collecting the community, these will be advertised events and all Team Members will be in GMRT uniform with ID.
- If anyone becomes aware of collections on our behalf which they are unsure about, please contact us either via Facebook Messenger (private message) or via our website.
How we might spend your donation...
When considering a donation to the team, many ask "What equipment do you actually need, and how much does that cost?" Truthfully, that’s a bit of an uncomfortable question to answer, since we don’t want to presume what you might like to donate. We have however come up with an idea we hope will be a solution to any unnecessary embarrassment.
Our 'Wish List' is an attempt to give you an indication of how your very kind donation could be spent. We hope you find this initiative useful to get a flavour for how future fund raising income will be spent.
