On the 29th May of this year, two of our friends and dog were involved in a horrible accident on Tryfan. Paul sustained serious back, rib and arm injuries but thankfully (and miraculously) he is now on a speedy road to recovery. Sadly our little dog Kevin did not survive the fall.

Incredibly,the Plas y Brenin Rescue Team were training volunteers to respond to such an event on the same mountain that day. The team telephoned for the OVRMO and helped Laura and Kevin off the mountain while staying with Paul until he was able to be airlifted safely off the mountain.

Without their expertise & knowledge we dread to think how much worse the outcome could have been.

OVMRO continues to be one of the busiest mountain rescue teams in the country assisting the Police and Ambulance authorities with rough terrain search and rescue in Northern Snowdonia. Its members are on stand-by 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year; giving their time for FREE to assist fellow users of the great outdoors who have come to grief.

In September, we are embarking on the GR20 trek in Corsica. GR20 is a long distance trail that traverses Corsica diagonally from north to south. It is considered to be the most difficult of all the GR courses in Europe with a trail that traverses 180km long with variation in height of approximately 10 000 metres, much like the terrain OVRMO serves.

Thank you for taking time to read our story, please donate whatever you can afford; all raised funds will go directly to the Ogwen Rescue team to help them continue their amazing and selfless work.

Many thanks,
