Keela announced as a headline sponsor for UK & Irish Mountain Rescue Conference in 2014
Scottish outdoor clothing brand Keela has just revealed that it is an Official (Platinum) Sponsor of the UK & Irish Mountain Rescue Conference 2014 – ‘The Gathering’.
The conference takes place every two years and is open to Mountain Rescue Teams from across the UK and Ireland; taking place in Aviemore between 12th-14th September. Next year’s event is hosted by the Scottish teams who are hoping to make it the most memorable Mountain Rescue Conference to date. The three-day conference includes a series of outdoor workshops run by the likes of legendary Scottish climber Dave Macleod, one of the keynote speakers is none other than Andy Kilpartrick (whose father was a member of the RAF Mountain Rescue team for many years) and a high profile line up of exhibitors such as Keela and other top outdoor brands.
Jonathan Hart Chairman of the Mountain Rescue Committee of Scotland said:
“We are delighted to launch our sponsorship pack and delighted to welcome Keela as the first company to sign up to the Platinum package, indeed the first company to sign up to sponsor the event. We look forward to other companies following their lead and sharing their commitment to support the voluntary mountain rescue services that will be at the conference next September.”
Kev Mitchell, leader of Ochils Mountain Rescue Team, who was at the launch of the sponsorship, said:
“I’ve worked with Keela over some time, contributing to the development of their Cumulus MR Jacket. Throughout that work Keela have been very supportive of Mountain Rescue and their support of this conference is just another example. I look forward to seeing them at the conference.”
