AFTER donating a drone to the team at Brecon Mountain Rescue, Bute Energy were invited to a demonstration of its capabilities and a tour of the Mountain Rescue Centre. The drone will help keep the team safe and improve their search operations.

Bute Energy have produced a short film with the Brecon Mountain Rescue Team which focusses on the essential work they do and demonstrates the drone’s ability to assist the team in operations. The film has been produced, in part to generate further donations for Brecon Mountain Rescue team to the wider public and viewers will be directed via a link to their just giving page. The film will be shared across social media on Wednesday 28th February.
