Wills-Kat donate Land Rover wedding gift to mountain rescue team
Washington: Prince William and Kate Middleton have donated their Land Rover, which they got as a wedding gift, to a mountain rescue team (MRT).
The Duke and Duchess, both 29, passed on the vehicle to MREW (Mountain Rescue England and Wales), which then organized a draw where Prince Harry selected the winner of the vehicle out of the 26 possible rescue teams.
That winner, the Patterdale team in the Lake District, then in turn gifted it to the Glossop Mountain Rescue Team.
“The vehicle will be greatly appreciated,” US Magazine quoted Keith Montgomery, honorary secretary of Glossop Mountain Rescue Team, as saying.
“Our present vehicle only has a shelf life of about six months and we were embarking on a major fundraising exercise to raise more than 45,000 pounds to replace it,” he added.
