Distinguished Service Award – Moira Weatherstone
09th April, 2021
We have recently presented Moira with a DSA for her contribution to Mountain Rescue in Scotland.
Moira joined Arrochar Mountain Rescue
Team back in 1990, and during her time on the team she has been their training coordinator for 2 years and Treasurer for 11 years, as well as an active rescuer.
In 1992 Moira also joined Search & Rescue Dog Association (Scotland)
and has had a succession of search dogs, Crioch, Skye and currently Kim. Within SARDA, in addition to being an active search and rescue dog handler, she has held the position of Secretary for five years and has also been an Assessor/Trainer for several years, assisting new handlers and their dogs to reach qualified standard.
And as if Moira didn’t already have enough to do, she has spent almost 10 years volunteering as Treasurer for Scottish Mountain Rescue, where she still holds this role. During her tenure she has been instrumental in guiding changes across the board in many aspects of running the organisation. She also works as an instructor on SMR national Search
Management Training Course.
We couldn’t possibly put into words the contribution Moira has volunteered to Mountain Rescue in Scotland over the last 30 years, her dedication and support has been outstanding.
Moira, from all of us at Scottish Mountain Rescue, we THANK YOU.
