Peak District walks - patches

We have designed some lovely Peak District iron-on patches, perfect for backpacks, clothes, blankets, cushions or wherever else you want to put them.

It will be a great way to keep track of all the awesome walks you’ve done and places you’ve visited in the Peak District National Park.

The patches make wonderful presents for both adults and children or you can simply treat yourself.

One of the ideas is that you can encourage children to get more excited about walking and exploring the Peak District by collecting the patches. 

We started with two designs Mam Tor and Kinder Scout, but have now added Thorpe Cloud and The Roaches to the collection, with more on the way!

The patches are iconic Peak District hills, landmarks and locations, all designed by Laura from Laura Hodgkinson Creative

raising funds for charity

Our patches will not only make great gifts but £1.75 for EVERY patch will also go to charity. (The total raised will be updated monthly – see below). The idea is to give something back to the volunteers who are there to take care of us if we ever have an accident on the hills or out walking.

We started out raising money for the Edale Mountain Rescue Team, however, as our patches have grown in popularity and cover a wider area we decided to share the love with all the Mountain Rescue Teams that cover the Peak District!

The seven Mountain Rescue teams that cover the Peak District are: (Edale, Derby, Buxton, Kinder, Glossop, Oldham and Woodhead). 

The Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation (PDMRO) is the umbrella body for all seven mountain rescue teams and one cave rescue team that operate within the Peak District.

As with all mountain rescue teams the PDMRO is a registered charity (no. 506681) and is made up entirely of volunteers. They solely rely on public donations to fund their activities of helping people in distress and are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.

Mountain Rescue Supporter

Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation (PDMRO) is a registered charity (no. 506681). The charity formed in 1964 after two separate and fatal incidents in the Peak District highlighting the need for a combined approach with the Mountain Rescue Teams.

The team organises the call-outs received for the Peak District and works with all seven Mountain Rescue Teams

The team of volunteers go out on emergency calls in the Peak District at all times of day covering a wide area, including Kinder Scout, Mam Tor but also places further south like Chee Dale and Padley Gorge so they are kept very busy.

The sale of these patches will only donate a small amount but the idea is that seeing the patches on backpacks whilst out hiking will create conversations, therefore increase the knowledge of Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation and the great job that they do.

how much have we raised?

Thank you so much to everyone that has ordered a charity patch. The total raised for our chosen charity (Edale Mountain Rescue Team) is…

£542.50

Thank you very much
