Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team
The client: Patterdale Mountain Rescue is one of the busiest rescue teams in the UK. Their team members are on call, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to rescue walkers and climbers from the mountains and dales of Patterdale and Ullswater. The team has around 30 active members as well as a number of probationers under training at any one time.
The brief: To design and build a website that works as hard as the charity it represents. Functionality and practicality dominated the brief, as team members needed a system that was user-friendly and easy to keep up-to-date. News sections and incident sections allow them to share vital information about their work and the rescues they undertake each year.
The donate section made it easy for website users to support the team financially. It brings together an array of platforms including JustGiving and VirginMoneyGiving, and provides guidance on donating by cheque or leaving a charitable legacy. The final strand was to create an effective ecommerce platform where supporters can buy merchandise or self-serve their membership renewals.
