Supporting Charities

The FTC-GB is run and maintained for fans of the Ford Taunus. We offer FREE membership and generate operational income selling Regalia and Spare Parts to support the running of the Club.

As part of our social responsibility pledge, the FTC-GB Club is committed to supporting local and regional charities in the UK.

We donate 50% of annual profits to charity and for 2024, the FTC-GB committee have once again selected Edale Mountain Rescue to be the beneficiary of the FTC-GB donation.


About Edale Mountain Rescue

Edale-Logo-400x400 The Edale Mountain Rescue is an volunteer mountain rescue team, providing a life-saving rapid response emergency service operating within the Peak District National Park.

The charity was formed by Tom Tomlinson and Fred Heardman in 1956 and was originally based in Edale within the Peak District National Park. In 1986 the team moved to their current site at the cement works in Hope.

The team members are on call, day and night, 365 days a year, to help those in need on the hills. All team members are volunteers and as a registered charity they rely solely on donations to fund their work. Edale Mountain Rescue receive no government funding.

Although the FTC-GB is a small club we feel strongly about the value the Edale Mountain Rescue adds to Emergency Response within the Derbyshire / South Yorkshire area and are proud to offer our support to their charity fundraising.
