This evening before team members departed our Ladybridge Hall base for the evenings exercise they were met by team friend and supporter Jackie Mather, who handed over a Christmas card to the team and a large tin of Cadbury Roses chocolates.
Jackie has become a valued friend of the team through tragic personal circumstances involving her brother Andrew Smith who sadly lost his life saving the life of his partners daughter, in a terrible drowning accident in Anglezarke reservoir on the 14th May this year.
All the team extends its Christmas wishes to Jackie and the other family members of the late Andrew Smith at what must be a sad personal time for them mixed with the knowledge that Andrew Smith died saving another.
