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)
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.
On Monday 5th March the team welcomed to its Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ, Mr Andrew (Andy) Sharman husband of the late Jean Sharman, family members and friends, who all came along to hand over a substantial donation of £1065.00 raised in the memory of Jean Sharman.
It was with great pleasure that today we again welcomed Andy who called in during our base and vehicle cleaning day along with his sister Pam, niece Julie and great nephew Johnathon. Julie works at the Co-operative Store in Adlington, where with the kind support and permission of the management and staff she organised an Easter Egg Raffle. The prizes included a variety of Easter Eggs including one very large egg which caught the attention of the stores customers. A fantastic £257.00 was raised for Bolton MRT from the raffle and Julie brought the money along today. Andy also brought along two further cheques totalling £70.00 which he had received for the team in Jean’s memory.
In total Bolton MRT has now received an astonishing £1,392.00 in Jean’s memory. The team is greatly humbled to receive such a large donation and hope that it is of some comfort to Andy, how much Jean’s family and friends clearly thought of her by making such substantial donations.
