    Extract from letter received by BMRT from the casualty’s friend.

    I’m writing to thank you for your help assisting my friend who was involved in an accident at Windgather Rocks last Sunday lunchtime. Without the assistance of the Mountain Rescue Team and other emergency services the situation could very easily have become a lot worse.

    Donation enclosed.
