Many thanks to leading retailer Westgate tyres of Morecambe who have donated 12 brand new tyres for 2 of our operational vehicles. The tyres have been fitted free of charge to our incident control vehicle, a Mercedes Sprinter and also to our troop carrier, a 14 seater Ford Minibus.
Westgate tyres, a family run enterprise is an established service centre and apart from the excellent quality service, they offer attractive discounts and a wide range of services including car batteries. Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team is proud to be sponsored and in partnership with this local family business.
In a time where it is recognised that all charities are finding it hard, the Coronavirus pandemic has affected all charities with funding, Westgate tyres has made this significant donation to our Mountain Rescue Team which is really appreciated and will keep our vehicles going, and with the money saved now being available for other important purchases such as medical equipment.
