Collection raises £2,000 for team

THE people of Calderdale have dug deep to help add a much-needed £2,000 to the coiffers of the Calder Valley Search and Rescue team.

The money was raised through a street collection.

Secretary Ann Ogden said: “The team is manned totally by volunteers and provides help to the other emergency services. We are based at Mytholmroyd but provide assistance throughout West Yorkshire and beyond.

“It costs about £30,000 per annum to keep the Team operational so we really appreciate the support.”
