OMRT was awarded £2,285 by Postcode Community Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
OMRT has used the money to upgrade the electronics and management systems in the control vehicle. The project will give the Team the ability to respond more quickly and accurately to changing situations on searches and rescues, which will help all who depend on the Team for assistance.
A spokesman for the Team said: “With the new equipment, we’ll be able to track our sections on the hill and direct them more efficiently”.
People’s Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery, where players play with their postcodes to win cash prizes while raising money for good causes. As a charity lottery, 50p from every £2 ticket goes to support charities and good causes across England, Scotland and Wales, including People’s Postcode Trust. People’s Postcode Lottery believes in supporting local communities so the money raised stays local to players.
