Running just to stay still.

Volunteer rescue teams are having to give up even more of their time and energy to raise funds, so they can save lives.

Northumberland National Park Search and Rescue Team, tasked with providing life-saving cover 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, gets no government funding, and instead has to provide everything from vehicles to waterproof clothing through their own hard work.

Being a registered charity, the team rely solely upon donations and fundraising events to keep them operational, and need to raise around pounds 15,000 each year.

Next weekend sees the launch of the latest venture to raise vital cash, with members taking part in a downhill run from the highest point in Northumberland to sea level.

The `Cheviot to Coast' challenge covers 40 miles - a milestone figure to celebrate the team's 40th anniversary.
