An Aberdeen-based creative has raised funds for Scottish Mountain Rescue.
Laura Sherriffs, whose business Fernweh predominantly offers a wide selection of chalk bags and hats, added printed face masks to her offering in early June.
However, since she felt “uneasy” about profiting during a pandemic, she decided to donate £5 from every mask sale to Scottish Mountain Rescue. Each of Laura’s five nature-inspired face masks costs £15.
Passionate about nature and rock climbing, it made sense for Laura to support the non-profit organisation which provides a civilian mountain rescue service.
She said: “I’m making these masks to raise money for Scottish Mountain Rescue who represent 24 Mountain Rescue Teams around Scotland and specialise in responding to emergencies and search and rescue callouts in the mountains and remote areas of Scotland.”
“Scottish Mountain Rescue is made up of more than 850 highly trained volunteers who continue to operate during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
So far, Laura has managed to raise £410, which will go towards volunteer training and equipment costs,.
