We are very pleased to announce today the receipt by the team of a wonderful and very generous grant of £3,000.00 from the Bolton Community and Voluntary Services Small Grants Round June 2010.
In a letter to our Life Vice President Tony McNally, accompanying the award of this very supportive grant, Sharon Bolus, Grants Support Worker, stated that the £3,000.00 grant had been awarded from the Bolton Vision Grant, and was to be used, (As per our application) against the purchase costs incurred against the replacement of our existing vehicle fleet.
Tony McNally who made this grant application on behalf of the team, which was supported by letters of support from colleague members in the Bolton MRT, stated that he was “overwhelmed by the very generous support of Bolton CVS in kindly supporting the Bolton MRT and in their award of the maximum grant available under the Small Grants Round June 2010.”
This generous and supportive grant has been set against the £3,000.00 deposit made against our order for three brand new state of the art, Land Rover Defender Mountain Rescue Ambulance vehicles.
Members of the Bolton CVS Small Grants Award Panel have been invited by our Life Vice President Tony McNally, to our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ on Thursday August 5th 2010, for a presentation on the work of the team.
The whole team membership extends its thanks to the Bolton CVS Small Grants Award Panel for offering this much appreciated and very kind grant.
