Collection Box Income for 2009

As 2009 has come to a close, we can reveal the total income for the year from our collection boxes out in the community was £3,774.42. Although this is some £1,445 less than in 2008, we are, nevertheless, very grateful to the generous customers and members of the public who have dropped their hard-earned coins into over 150 of our distinctive boxes during a time when we have all felt the effects of the global economic situation. We are also indebted to the many businesses, shops, public houses, leisure centres, garages, restaurants and cafes, which kindly find space to display our boxes in support of the work we do, as well as to the loyal individual supporters who fill boxes at home.

Our collection box co-ordinator, Gillian Gregory, is always on the lookout for more places to host boxes for us, so if you haven’t made your New Year’s Resolution yet, how about undertaking to support Bolton Mountain Rescue Team by contacting to ask for a collection box to be delivered. Your reward will be a regular visit from one of our grateful and friendly Team or Support Group members to check/empty the box.
