On Sunday 5th February 2012, six Team Call Out list members were involved in directly assisting two NWAS Paramedics in the treatment and evacuation of a 60 year old lady, Mrs Jean Sharman from cottages near Bradshaw Cricket Club, Bolton. (Please see Incident Report 16-2012 dated 5th February 2012) During the course of this incident two members were redirected by NWAS (Manchester) Control to another separate incident, leaving their four colleagues and the two NWAS Paramedics to continue dealing with this serious medical incident.
Sadly we subsequently discovered that Mrs Jean Sharman had unfortunately suffered a serious brain haemorrhage at the time of our involvement and very sadly passed away a few hours later once she had arrived at Royal Bolton Hospital.
Today we have received a very thoughtful donation of £10.00 in the memory of the late Mrs Jean Sharman from her friends Mr Keith and Mrs Margaret Robinson of Harwood, Bolton.
In a letter to our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE, accompanying this kind donation, Mrs Margaret Robinson states;
“Please find enclosed a donation to you and your team of Mountain Rescue. As you can see it is made in the memory of our friend Jean Sharman, who sadly passed away on the 5th February. My husband and I would like to thank you for your magnificent efforts in assisting Jean that day. Keep up the good work, people need you.”
The whole team membership would like to thank Mr and Mrs Robinson for their thoughtful donation in memory of their friend Mrs Jean Sharman.
