On 10th October 2019 a charity Nursery sheep dog trial was held at Totterbank, Crosthwaite, with all proceeds being donated to a very worthy local cause, The Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dogs.

The Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dogs are a volunatry organisation and are dedicated to the training, developing and deploying of Search Dogs within the Lake District Mountains and Fells to search for missing people. Search and Rescue dogs take at least 2 years to train and all the training is carried out in the owners spare time, and involves weekly training sessions, including weekends. Mountain Rescue volunteers don't get paid for their service, and attend rescues in all weathers, including some of the worst conditions that the Lake District can throw at them, saving the lives of those in need. Such amazing generosity, bravery and dedication by the volunteers and their dogs.

A very impressive £500 was raised during the trial, this included a raffle, small auction and the entry fees.

Reverand Angela Hughes won the Novice trial with her dog Alf, and Al Bradley won the Nursery trial with his dog Tippi.

The Search and Rescue team were most delighted to see Tippi win the Nursery trial as she is the mother of one of the Search and Rescue teams new recruits, a pup named Jura.
