Last Wednesday we reported that young Krisshan Jade Weedall, who has been described as ’Bolton’s youngest busker,’ visited the team to hand over another very kind donation to the team. At the end of her visit, Krisshan surprised us all, by telling our Team Leader Garry that she wants to raise even more money for the team through her Bolton town centre busking and we advised our readers to keep watching this website for more news.
Well just after our evening training had commenced this evening, Krisshan duly arrived in the company of her mum Alison, being met once again by our Chairman Craig Lamb.
Krisshan then totally surprised Craig, by handing over a fantastic further £40.00 donation, as a result of her busking in Bolton on Saturday 26th March 2011, her second ’busking’ date this year, now spring and warmer weather continues to be upon us.
It may interest our readers to know that we have nominated young Krisshan for a Bolton at Home ’ Stars of the Community’ ’ Young Person of the Year Award.’ (In which we wish her all good luck)
Krisshan, aged eleven, of Plodder Lane, Farnworth, a pupil at Harper Green School, has been described by The Bolton News, as Bolton’s ’Youngest Busker.’ (You can see her singing via the Bolton News website, – video links, and also on You Tube)
Krisshan sings on Newport Street, within Bolton town centre, donating a large part of her ’earnings’ to charity. (Her ’spot’ is between Greggs and Greenhalghs, usually on a Saturday)
Since September 2010, upto date Krisshan has managed to raise the fantastic amount of well over £500.00 for local charities.
Each charity is chosen personally by Krisshan, and so far she has supported the RSPCA, MacMillan Nurses, Kidz 2Gether Horwich (Autistic Children), Bolton Destitute Animal Shelter, Roald-Dahl Foundation for Epileptics, and now Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.
The whole team membership extends its fullest thanks to Krisshan for the wonderful support in raising money she has been doing for the team.
