Today at the Lead Mines Valley Remembrance Sunday Service attended by the team, we met our long standing friend and supporter David Bisset.
Way back in August 2005, Iain Bisset whilst climbing with his father and fellow climber David Bisset, at Ousel’s Nest Quarry, Chapeltown, suffered injuries in a climbing accident, to which the team and the ambulance service were called. Iain thankfully went on to make a full recovery, and went back to rock climbing at a high standard, and since this time has also travelled abroad extensively. Since the accident, Iain, his family and particularly David his father, have become valued, stalwart and very much appreciated, regular supporters and friends of the team.
Today we are very pleased to have received from David another kind and thoughtful donation to the team of £50.00.
David handed over the donation to our Team Leader Garry Rhodes along with an accompanying letter which stated:
To all the members of the team,
Remembrance Sunday is one of the milestones of the passing year, and it is good to remember these young men who died far from home, and hold them in our memory as representatives of the many who have died in war.
Thank you for your support of this event, it is good that it continues from year to year. I remain in awe of your commitment, expertise and professionalism.
Regards to all
As ever in turn the whole team membership extends its thanks to David and his family for their continuing appreciated, sincere thoughtful kindness and support of the Bolton MRT.
