The dates for Glossop Mountain Rescue Team‘s Santa tour have been revealed.
The traditional Christmas tour by Father Christmas and the rescue team is part of their fundraising efforts. As a volunteer organisation funded purely by public donations it’s an important way for the team to raise both money and awareness of their role.
