Visit to team by 16th North Bolton Cub Pack results in marvellous surprise donation.

This evening after ’suffering’ a last minute cancellation earlier this year due to another late notice team commitment, the Cub Scouts and Leaders of the 16th North Bolton Cub Pack (The Oaks) from Astley Bridge, Bolton, finally got to visit us at our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ.

They were met by Team Call Out list members Mike Marsh, Elaine Gilliland, and Matthew Hailwood, Trainee Team Member Tony Woods and Support Group Member Iain Clarkson.

Over twenty Cub Scouts and their five Leaders were treated to a demonstration of the teams search and rescue equipment, a look over our two Land Rover Mountain Rescue Ambulances based at our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ and much ’hands on’ work with our stretchers and other equipment.

All the Cub Scouts and Leaders reported they had had a fantastic evening and thanked our members present with the totally unexpected surprise of a very thoughtful £190.00 donation.

This generous donation had been raised by the Cubs during their July 2009 Camp at Waddacar Scout Camp, Lancashire, bad weather meant they couldn’t do their sponsored walk on Beacon Fell, so instead they walke around the Scout Camp.

The whole team wishes to express its sincere thanks to all the Cub Scouts of the 16th North Bolton Cub Pack (The Oaks) for their very kind and thoughtful, much appreciated support of the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.
