Jul 17 2010
We are very pleased to announce today the receipt of a kind £20.00 donation from Team Trainee member John Fletcher.
On the evening of Wednesday 14th July 2010, heavy and localised rain in the Buckshaw Village area of Chorley, Lancashire, where he lives, prevented him from attending our regular Wednesday evening exercise.
This was despite him trying to get to our Base / HQ in his 4WD vehicle, but the flooded roads en route proved too much.
In the course of his journeys that night he ended up towing out 3 x vehicles from flooded road sections, with two drivers kindly offering him £10.00 each for his time and help.
On each occasion John informed the drivers that he did not want payment for his kindness but instead would they consider a donation to Bolton MRT in his name, which both gladly did.
