Mountain Rescue England and Wales 2010 Calendar.

Today the team received a supply of 2010 Mountain Rescue England and Wales Calendars, as supplied to every Mountain and Cave Rescue Team in England and Wales as part of a continuing major sponsorship of Mountain Rescue England and Wales by Goodyear tyres.

Goodyear tyres currently sponsor MRTs in England and Wales through the free supply of a full set of 4×4 tyres to each team, alongside discount purchases for further tyres including individual team members vehicles.

In a further development of their kind and appreciated support, Goodyear tyres sponsored a 2010 Calendar, featuring UK mountain and hill views, which has now been printed with every MRT in England and Wales alongside our sister Cave Rescue teams receiving 50x copies each to sell for a minimum donation of £5.00 to raise funds for each individual team.

Our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE has stated that, “This very kind sponsorship is yet another example of how major corporate bodies are now increasingly lending their backing and support to UK Mountain Rescue.”

The Bolton News in its Tuesday 1st December 2009 issue, carried a feature on these calendars, which resulted within a couple of hours with three immediate orders being placed with our team. With the receipt today of our calendars these can now be despatched soon

Copies of this calendar can be obtained from the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team by placing orders on line via secretary@boltonmrt.org.uk We will despatch orders by post the following day or soonest thereafter.

Alternatively, orders can be placed by writing to Mrs G. Gregory, Honorary Secretary, Bolton Mountain Rescue Team, 7 Montcliffe Cottages, Georges Lane, Horwich, Bolton . BL6 6RS

With all orders please detail a delivery address and telephone contact, your calendar will be sent out with a request for you to return a minimum £5.00 donation for the Bolton MRT. Cheques should be made payable to Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.

As a special festive bonus and to thank you for your support of the Bolton MRT all persons placing an order will also receive free of charge a Bolton Mountain Rescue Team Supporters Car badge.

If mountains and hills are not your ’cup of tea’ regards calendars, then do not forget 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.

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.
