Readers may recall that the young lady residents (aged 64 to 85) of Greenbank Sheltered Housing in Horwich decided to ’bare all’ recently for a ’Golden Oldie Girls’ 2010 Calendar, very tastefully done of course.
All the proceeds from the sale of this excellent calendar are being very kindly donated to the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team, and the ’Bolton News’ in particular has been very supportive giving some excellent publicity.
Recently, on Friday 6th November, our Life Vice President Tony McNally, himself a spritely 68 year old ! surprised all the ’Calendar Girls,’ by making an unannounced visit to Greenbank Sheltered Housing in Horwich to personally thank all the young women for baring all to raise funds for the team.
With all his clothes on we might add, he presented all the ladies with a metal MRT Supporters lapel badge, MRT Supporter Stickers and a ’Thank you’ engraved plaque from the team to all the ladies at Greenbank.
Whilst there Tony was amazed to recieve the fantastic news from the ladies that sales of their calendar to date have already raised a large amount of money for the team.
Copies of the fast selling out ’Greenbank Golden Oldies Girls’ Calendars can be obtained directly from Barbara and Gerrald Howell, 4 Greenbank, Chorley New Road, Horwich, Bolton, BL6 6LA, telephone 01204 697401 at £6.00 a Calendar.
