Sad news and good news from our valued friends at Accrington and Blackburn CHA Walking Club.

Today in the post we received the sad news that our very valued supporters and friends at Accrington and Blackburn CHA Walking Club, have decided to disband their walking club.

In a letter to the team, their Secretary Margaret Barnes explained that the disbandment is, “due to a reduced number of members, their age and infirmity.”

Margaret went on to explain in her letter that the Accrington and Blackburn CHA Walking Club had kindly and very thoughtfully decided to distribute their remaining finances to the charities they have supported over the years.

With the letter was a very generous ‘final’ donation of £100.00 to the team.

The whole team as ever expresses its thanks and appreciation to all the members, past and present, of Accrington and Blackburn CHA Walking Club, who over a great many years have very kindly and faithfully supported the Bolton MRT.
