    Just want to alert members to the online GoFundMe site for help for the family of the injured MR team member in the Lakes. Please help if you are able.

    Why has there been no mention as far as I've seen of the Mountain Rescue incident in the Lakes?, could it be a guilty conscience. There are a few on here that have ignored the rules even after criticising me for asking about going walking in the early stages of the pandemic. I have abided by the rules throughout and have not done a crafty one as some have mentioned. I have learned a lot from this forum but will not be part of it any longer.

    It was mentioned by @Shewie in the random post thread I believe and a few people commented.

    By the way I contributed to the Gofundme fund raiser and shared the link on a FB group. The admins asked me to remove the link and pointed to something on the Patterdale MR site saying to only use the official fund raining page because of possible fraud. I wrote to both the sponsor and to Gofundme for assurances that the money would definitely get to the right place and received assurances that were reassuring :)

    In addition to the £730,000 on the main Just Giving fund https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/Chris-Lewis-Support-Fund-LDSAMRA-Patterdale-MRT £26,000 has been raised on the Gofundme page mentioned by @Rmr
