Rescue team in fundraiser

WOODHEAD Mountain Rescue is holding a fundraising event next week.

The event, at 5.45pm on Wednesday at the Holiday Inn, Barnsley, includes a two- course meal followed by a talk from the team's John Howe.

Formed in the early 1970s, Woodhead Mountain Rescue is a volunteer search and rescue team which serves South Yorkshire and the Peak District.

The service relies entirely on donations to fund equipment, vehicles and its search and rescue dogs.

* Tickets for the event are 10 and must be booked in advance.
