Charity Prize Bingo evening, in support of Bolton MRT, organised by Sir George Millne Lodge No 2490, Grand Lodge of England Limited, at the Crown Hotel, Horwich

On Tuesday evening, 3rd June this week, Support Group members Steve James and Sarah Hindle representing the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team, went along to yet another very kind Charity Prize Bingo Evening, organised by the Sir George Millne Lodge No 2490, Grand Lodge of England Limited, (Formerly known as the RAOB GLE Limited, Friendship Lodge 2488) held at the Crown Hotel, Horwich, with the team as their named charity beneficiary.

We have been supported on a number of times now by our valued friends in the Sir George Millne Lodge No 2490, Grand Lodge Of England, and their continuing support is very much appreciated by all in Bolton MRT.

The following account of the evening is by Sarah Hindle of our Support Group;

“On Tuesday evening Steve James and I attended the Charity Prize Bingo Night, at the Crown Hotel, Horwich, organised by ’The Buffs’. We were made very welcome by the enthusiastic group.

We then enjoyed six games of Bingo, a flyer and a raffle – all new to Steve as this was his first experience of ‘Bingo’ and we were both successful in winning a prize each! Steve for Bingo, myself the prize ticket draw.



There was plenty of high spirit chatter and enthusiasm amongst the group, and at the end of the evening we were told that the marvellous sum of £75.00 had been raised for the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.

As always, the team appreciates all the hard work of the Lodge members in organising these monthly events and for selecting Bolton Mountain Rescue Team yet again as their chosen charity this month.”
