Kendal Mountain Rescue Team members raise a glass to the Mountain Medicine special brew

Volunteer mountain rescuers are raising their glasses to a new fundraising effort in support of their work.

Kendal Mountain Rescue Team will receive 50p for every pint sold of a special beer introduced by a local brewery.

Mountain Medicine is an ale brewed specially to help the team which carries out rescues in the south-eastern Lake District, the western Howgills and parts of southern Cumbria and northern Lancashire.

The beer is being sold exclusively in Burgundy’s wine bar and The Brewhouse in Kendal.

Team members took part in an evening launch of Mountain Medicine.

Kendal MRT’s annual running costs are £45,000 and its volunteer members have attended 39 incidents so far this year.
