STAFF from a Huddersfield town centre supermarket trekked through the Colne Valley to raise money for a life-saving mountain rescue team.
Employees at Sainsbury’s on Market Street walked from Marsden railway station, along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal towpath to Slaithwaite, up Cop Hill, through Merrydale and back to Marsden along the towpath.
The walk is expected to have raised about £500 for the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team.
Claire Earnshaw, one of the walkers, said: “The rescue team have assisted my colleagues at the store with previous walks, which raised money for Ward 21 at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and Sport Relief.
“So to thank them our price control assistant Janet Lowery organised the walk.”
The rescue team, which was formed in 1965, is called out through the police to co-ordinate searches in emergencies or other similar incidents.
