Yesterday afternoon (21/5/22) whilst some of our volunteers were finishing up as the event supporting Emily came to a close (more info to follow), they came across an injured walker between the top of the miners’ track and the summit of Pendle.
The casualty had been out with a group of friends and sustained an injury to their knee. The call was made to the North West Ambulance Service, and team members were able to promptly treat and package the casualty, before transporting them off the hill in one of our off-road ATVs, and subsequently on to meet the ambulance for onwards transport to the hospital.
From all the team, we wish the casualty a speedy recovery.
