Very kind donation from Gregson Lane Dog Training Club

We are very pleased to report today the receipt of a generous and kind £200.00 donation from Gregson Lane Dog Training Club. The Club meets on a weekly basis at Gregson Lane Community Centre, Hoghton, Lancashire, and amongst other training provides for the Good Citizens Dog Training Test.

In a conversation with the Clubs Treasurer, Mrs J. Williams, of Euxton, our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE heard that the Club regularly donates any ’surplus’ funds within the Club to local charities, which have included the Bolton based charity ’Paws for Kids,’ which provides foster homes for family pets when family relationships break down.

All members of the Gregson Lane Dog Training Club are walkers, so Mrs Williams explained to our Team Leader that their support of Mountain Rescue on a local basis was an easy one to make. The Club have also very kindly similarly supported our colleagues in Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team.

The whole team membership would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of Gregson Lane Dog Training Club for their very kind and much appreciated support of the Bolton MRT.
