Joe’s Spine MRT Challenge

January 10th, 2019

Our LPG delivery driver Joe Parsons is a volunteer for the Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association

Joe is pictured centre with fellow volunteers David and Matt.

The association provides fell and cave rescue services to help people and animals in difficulty.

There’s no government funding available for Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association and annual running costs are in excess of £50,000. The service remains free to the public.

Montane Spine Challenger

The guys will be raising money by doing the Montane® Spine® Challenger which is a non-stop, 108 mile race between Edale and Hardraw* with a time limit of 60hrs.

The team provides a terrific service to people who get into difficulty in caves, on the fells and in the waterways. They are requested by partnership agencies to assist them in searching for (and in some cases) evacuating them from precarious positions.

David said “We have done quite a bit of running over the years and we thought a 110 mile run in January might just get folk to dig deep and sponsor us. Check out the Spine Race web page for details of the event where there’s a live tracker available from 0900 Sat 12th Jan.”

What our clients are saying

We have just had a delivery this morning. The driver is new and I just wanted you to know how efficient he was and very friendly. He told us about your new vehicle which will be able to access hard to reach properties if the weather is bad and the big tankers cannot get access. Mr S
We had an exceptionally busy period at the pub in summer and ran out of gas from a delivery which would normally have lasted much longer. I rang Northern Energy mid-morning when we discovered our situation and they delivered within 20 minutes! We were all very impressed by the speed and helpfulness of the service which got us out of a potentially very difficult situation. Lunch service went on as normal in our pub.
Thank you, Northern Energy!

My husband and I are very pleased with your overall service and have recommended your service to other people round about. We rate you 10. Many thanks Mrs B
Yes I would recommend you, I score 10. The 'PPP' keeps my tank topped up, no VAT to pay. A very good efficient firm with nice friendly delivery men. Thank you Mr W
Been with you now since 2005 would recommend you to anyone Mr W
Always good service from ring (a day before) to say delivery is on it's way to the tank being filled up, thanks guys! Mr T
Last year I recommended you to my neighbour and he is equally happy with your service. Mrs S
I have just recommended your company to a friend who's just moved into a new home and uses oil. I have given you 10 in ratings. Mr M
We find the whole service really easy & efficient Mrs M
We are new customers, but the one delivery we have had came on time. The driver was very friendly and quick with no mess. Very pleased and no need to go elsewhere! Mrs D
I have always been very happy with the service I've recieved from Northern Energy and in fact have got you 2 more customers in the village. The delivery men are always courteous and I think that goes a long way! Northern Energy get a five star rating from me. Mr C
I am pleased with your automatic top-up system. It saves me worrying about running out and presumably saves you money if you can top up a group of neighbouring customers in one delivery - so win-win. Mr D
We have been very impressed with the service received from Northern Energy. The team are always very friendly and always willing to help in any which way they can. If we are cancelling a delivery there are never any questions asked. Recently we had a new oil tank fitted and the oil was delivered within two days of being ordered (we had allowed up to 5 days). Mr K
As a customer I love the all inclusive package of oil and maintenance that you offer. As a second home owner, we never run out of oil like we do ‘at home’ because you keep us ‘topped up’. Mr C
