South Lancashire Section of the Caravan Club formally launches their Charity Year 2010-2011 in aid of Bolton Mountain Rescue Team
Today experienced Team Call Out list member Chris Tennant, accompanied by his wife and Support Group member Tina Tennant, journeyed to the Longridge (Preston) Show Ground meeting of the South Lancashire Section of the Caravan Club, to represent the team at the SLSCCs formal launch of their Charity Year 2010-2011 in support of the team.
Team Support Group member Iain Clarkson also attended, and together with Chris and Tina, demonstrated the contents of our Land Rover Mountain Rescue Ambulance to the assembled caravaners in particular their children.
Chris was kindly invited to address all present (via the public address system!) about the valuable work of the team, being thanked by Gerry Lunn, (of Halliwell, Bolton) Charity Chairman of the South Lancashire Section of the Caravan Club.
Some fundraising has already taken place by the SLSCC in support of the team, in advance of today’s formal charity year launch, including we understand a sponsored parachute jump by a SLSCC member on Saturday June 5th 2010.
The team wishes to extend its full thanks to all at the South Lancashire Section of the Caravan Club for so kindly offering to support the team throughout 2010-2011 as its charity year beneficiary.
