Galway Mountain Rescue Team will be on the streets of Galway this Saturday for its annual fundraising collection. Members of the team will be on Shop Street and in the Galway Shopping Centre on the Headford Road throughout the day. Ronan Concannon, team leader, says it takes approximately €30,000 per year to run the team covering costs such as insurance, transport, and rescue and safety equipment. Much of this has to be raised by the team itself and often members have to cover their own costs associated with callouts and training. He said that the annual bucket collection is hugely important to the team in terms of fundraising and that they get a fantastic response from the people of Galway every year.
