CaptureThe King’s Head Inn, Newton-under-Roseberry has teamed up with its local Mountain Rescue Team to help raise funds for the vital organisation and honour the amazing work they do right on the popular Inn’s doorstep.
The pub has launched a competition to name a new ale to help raise vital funds for the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team. The new ale will then take pride of place on the bar at The King’s Head Inn and a donation of 5p per pint will then be made to Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team from every pint sold.
Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team is a search and rescue organisation set up 50 years ago to go to the aid of persons lost or injured on the North York Moors and other remote regions. The fifty men and women in the team, are from all walks of life, are on call 24 hours a day 365 days a year and are all unpaid volunteers. They are called out about 50 times a year with a fifth of these incidents occurring at Roseberry Topping.
Pete Mounsey of Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team said:
“We are always very grateful for any fundraising activity to help support our organisation. We are regulars at The King’s Head Inn and follow our weekly training sessions at Roseberry Topping with a visit to the pub. We are delighted that they have come up with the great idea to help support our work. It will not only raise funds but also raise awareness about our activities in this area.”
To enter people simply need to choose a name that has a connection to the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team and The King’s Head Inn. Then complete an entry form, available online or in the pub and take it to The King’s Head Inn with a £1 donation to Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team. Closing date May 29th.
Paul Brown, General Manager at The King’s Head Inn said: 
“We are so lucky to be located in one of the most idyllic locations in the country. Many of our customers are walkers and cyclists who regularly enjoy the outdoors at North Yorks Moors and especially Roseberry Topping, before enjoying a drink or a meal or staying here at The King’s Head Inn. We hope not only to raise vital funds for Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team but also have a permanent reminder on the bar of the work that they do for us.”
