Locals vote for Buxton MRT

In a competition run by Santander to promote its company re-branding from the old Abbey National, customers at Spring Gardens, in Buxton were asked to cast a vote for which of three charities should benefit from the Santander Community Chest.

THANK YOU – people of Buxton, for voting mountain rescue!  The team benefits from that competition AND receives a bonus prize that staff of the branch have been able to offer.  Instead of the previous £200 chest value, the team receives £400 in vouchers – to be redeemed at a number of high street shops.  After some consideration the team has opted to spend the money on new computer hardware and providing a broadband internet connection at its base in Dove Holes.  This facility will enable the downloading of search management information and search maps which will greatly improve the team’s response to missing person reports.
