Very kind and thoughtful legacy left to Bolton MRT by the late Miss Mary Alice Kelly, someone who was a wonderful supportive friend of the team

Today our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE received from Russell and Russell (Solicitors) acting on behalf of the estate of Miss Mary Alice Kelly deceased, the sum of £2,000.00 in respect of the legacy left to Bolton Mountain Rescue Team under her will.

Miss Mary Kelly very kindly supported the team for many years and we truly appreciated her very kind friendship of the team over this period.
Mary Kelly was a friend of the mother of our current Team Training Officer Dave Marsh, a former team Search Dog handler, current Secretary of the National Search and Rescue Dog Association (NSARDA) who is presently known to our readership as the handler of Trainee Drowned Victim Search dog Sasha.

The late Mary Alice Kelly of Morris Green, Bolton, kindly also made similar £2,000.00 very thoughtful, and supportive donations to CAFOD, Derian house, St Ann’s Hospice, British Heart Foundation, St Patrick’s Missionary Society, Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament, National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society and St Ethelberts.

As with all legacy and bequest donations of this nature, the memory of Mary Alice Kelly and her valued and appreciated support of the team, will live on and be remembered by the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team via a commemorative plaque which will be obtained and placed on display at our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ.

The whole team membership extends its’ condolences to all who knew Miss Mary Alice Kelly, including her family members and friends.
