I read, with dismay, news of the theft from one of Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team's vehicles recently.

The volunteers had been unloading their vehicles after returning from a training exercise when thieves struck, stealing a mobile phone and satnav.

Quite apart from the callousness of stealing from an organisation whose members volunteer their own time to rescue people, the team gets no Government funding and so would have to fund the replacements out of their own pocket.

I got in contact with the team to see if PocketGPSWorld could help. And I'm delighted to report that Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team will shortly be receiving a replacement Garmin satnav courtesy of PocketGPSWorld.com.

You can show your support for the team by joining their Support Group, full details can be found on their website at http://www.cvsrt.org.uk/.

What a generous idea. Well done :-)

Absolute shame the unit got pinched in the first place though :-(

If the thieves are caught, they should be taken to the Moors blindfolded and dumped in freezing conditions in the dark with no SatNav. If they make it bake, straight to jail, if not, so what?

Very generous.

Are you sure it should not have been a Tomtom - it seems to like narrow country tracks a lot?

There are certain people who think of nothing other than their own personal gain, I think they call them scum.
Lets hope one day the thieves need an emergency service and the phone they nicked has a flat battery.

I favour dropping them off at North Pole - the worse the crime, the less clothing and other gear given them. When (if) they get back they are free to go

It beggars belief at the level of callousness as to which people will stoop to, I hope that the thief will hang it's head in shame.

That was a nice guesture to give them a new sat nav (nice one PGPSW)

I'm in my 60's and have to ask myself what this country will be like when my grandchildren are my age.

The "Soft Touch" with criminals is NOT WORKING in many cases.

Build MORE prisons with no access to Phones, TV, Drugs and certainly NO VOTES, they are there to be punished.

If the perpetrator is an illegal SEND THEM HOME, no if's or but's.

Well done for doing the honourable thing by replacing the SatNav.

I'm in my late 60's & grew up in an era where you got a good belting if you misbehaved & contrary to what the academic dimwits, who peddle their 'spare the child, garbage, say, it didn't do me any harm.
