A Peak District rescue team is launching a different kind of search.

Edale Mountain Rescue Team needs marshals to help on one of its major fundraisers, the Nine Edges endurance event this month. The challenge involves running, walking and climbing and covers a distance of 20 miles.

The rescue team needs volunteers to help marshal – either for a few hours or for the whole day. The event is on Saturday, 27 September and takes place between Fairlholmes and Baslow.

Contact deputy team leader Dave Coss on 07786 852850 if you can lend a hand.

The team will also benefit from a jazz night organised by the Rotary Club of Hope Valley at Calver Village Hall on 18 October. For tickets contact the MRT’s chairman Rob Small on 07799 893040.
