“Our Team President, Bob Hutchinson and Secretary, Gillian Gregory, journeyed to Little Lever to talk to the forty members of JIGSAW – The Bolton Area Stroke Group. After a welcome cup of tea and biscuits, Bob gave a brief outline of the history and work of Bolton Mountain Rescue Team and then invited questions from the members. There were lots of interesting questions, and it turned out that Debbie Smith, the daughter of one of the members, Joyce Smith, was a member of the Team many years ago and Bob remembered her well.
Some members were able to go outside to have a look at the Landrover Ambulance and the equipment carried aboard, and it was clear from chatting to them that several had been keen walkers in their fitter days and showed great interest in our work.
Bob and Gillian would like to thank JIGSAW for their warm welcome and hospitality and interest in Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.”
Footnote; On Wednesday 14th July our Secretary Gillian Gregory received a very kind letter off JIGSAW, saying how much they had enjoyed the talk on the team, commenting; “You all do a marvellous job and to think it’s all voluntary – amazing!” Attached with this letter was a very kind donation to the team of £25.00.
