HF Holidays Donates to Rescue Organisations

Mountain rescue

HF Holidays supports a range of projects which are related to people’s access to and enjoyment of the UK countryside. As well as facilitating The Pathways Fund – where donations from guests and members are channelled into worthwhile projects – we also provide corporate donations. For 2019 we are pleased to once again be able to donate funds to a number of Mountain Rescue and Air Ambulance organisations.

These organisations are all run on a charitable basis with no funding from the government and many of their staff work on a voluntary basis. They all carry out vital work assisting people in emergency situations. All the chosen organisations operate in areas where HF Holidays guests go walking.

Here are just a small selection of the responses received from the organisations we have been able to donate to which gives a flavour of the vital services they provide: 

“Thank you very much for your generous donation. I hope that your holiday makers never need our services but appreciate your company’s ongoing support.”

J Newport, Patterdale Mountain Rescue

“We hugely appreciate your continued support. Your donation will be put towards the purchase of a new state of the art drone with infra-red capability.”

S MacDonald, Glencoe Mountain Rescue

“The charity requires funds of over £4 million per annum to continue our vital service so your donation is very much appreciated. The Air Ambulance is in operation 365 days per year and since our launch we have carried out thousands of missions, helping those in need across Dorset and Somerset who are in life threatening situations.”

J Plowden, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance

“On average, the emergency phone at Cornwall Air Ambulance rings three times a day and the crew are called to someone needing urgent medical care. Because of your support, they are able to be there at a moment’s notice, caring for that patient in their moment of need.”

S Bray, Cornwall Air Ambulance

“Your recent donation will help us to save lives. Thank you! You may be aware that is costs in excess of £11 million each year to continue our life-saving work, so we truly value every contribution. None of us every know when we, our family, friends or community may need to depend on this vital service, which is why your support is so important to us.”

L Harris, Air Ambulance Kent, Surrey, Sussex

“As an independent charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals and organisations such as yourself to help save lives across Yorkshire. We really are very grateful to you for your support.”

L Shorrock, Yorkshire Air Ambulance
