In an emergency call 999 and ask for Police then Mountain Rescue
Bridgedale have supported Mountain Rescue Teams for several years – they provide three pairs of socks every year free of charge to all members. We chatted them to find out more about the history of their support.
As a technical sock manufacturer, we wanted to do our small part in supporting MRT – as your members are out in the most challenging terrains and weather conditions, if we can make sure your feet are warm, dry and comfortable, it is hopefully one less thing for you to worry about, so you can concentrate on helping the people who need it.
As we manufacture Bridgedale socks in our own factory in Northern Ireland, we can take socks directly from the source. Ronnie is our Factory Manager, and he manages a great team of people who are all motivated to make sure the socks we produce are the very best quality they can be, so they will perform in all conditions.
The Bridgedale factory has been making socks for over 100 years, we use only high quality yarns and we design our socks using the best blend of natural and synthetic yarns to ensure your feet stay dry, warm and comfortable.
Every single sock that we knit, is checked by hand by one of our team, so you can be sure that every sock is perfect, and that is why we are able to offer our lifetime guarantee.
Whenever we get an e-mail or a note from an MRT member to say how much they love our socks! It’s always great to get feedback and to know that we have helped in some small way.
You will find a selection of Bridgedale socks in most Outdoor stores, and we also have our own website www.bridgedale.com, where you can see the complete range of socks we make.
