On Friday evening, 20th April 2012, the Team played hosts to a visit of the 1st Upholland Scout Group and their leaders. Sixteen Scouts together with their leaders and some family members were welcomed to the Team’s headquarters by Team Life Vice President, Tony McNally whose two grandsons, Ben and Dan Martin were members of the Scout Group.
After the briefest of welcomes it was over to Team Member Mike Marsh, a long serving Team Member and also a keen Scouter himself and Team Member Phil Crook. Mike and Phil gave an enjoyable talk outlining the work of Mountain Rescue and in particular the work and scope of what Bolton Mountain Rescue Team is involved in. The Scouts showed great interest and enthusiasm during the talk but their interest surged when Mike and Phil took the Scouts into our vehicle garage and demonstrated in a hands on way the vast range of specialist equipment the Team carries.
Today we are very pleased to announce the receipt of a second very kind donation via the Charities Aid Foundation, of £11.87p from Mr John Lechmere of Skelmersdale, Lancashire, on behalf of the 1st Upholland Scout Group, by way of thanks for our hospitality during their visit of 20th April.
The total donated by the Group via the Charities Aid Foundation now totals £59.36p
The entire team membership once again wishes to express its thanks to all at 1st Upholland Scout Group for their appreciated support of the team in this manner. Please also see website report dated Monday 30th July 2012.
