Windfarm funding boost delivers new vehicle for rescue team
Wind turbines have generated a funding lifeline for community projects across Perth and Kinross including the Tayside Mountain Rescue Association.
Figures for 2016/17 show SSE windfarm funds delivered £518,000 of support in the area.
Among the 48 local projects to benefit was the Tayside Mountain Rescue Association which was awarded £25,000 from the Griffin and Calliachar Fund to purchase a new communications command vehicle.
The team has 30 volunteers. The new vehicle will ensure the safety of expeditions until at least 2030 and will also be used to educate the community on staying safe.
