We are very pleased to announce today the extremely generous donation to Bolton Mountain Rescue Team of £1,500.00 from a recent fundraising adventure by staff (and their friends) of the Go Outdoors store at Wigan.
Months in planning, the staff at Go Outdoors, Wigan, very kindly decided alongside some of their friends, to undertake a fundraising cycle ride from the Wigan store to the Go Outdoors Inverness, Scotland store, over seven days in September this year, with monies raised going directly to supporting the work of Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.
At Go Outdoors, Wigan, two current Bolton MRT team members are on the retail staff, namely very long serving team member Chris Tennant and Nick Berry, our Equipment Officer, Stretchers and Ropes.
The store Manager at go Outdoors, is former Bolton MRT team member John Harold, who is very supportive of Chris and Nicks current membership of the team.
(At Go Outdoors Manchester store, we have another staff link in Mark Lloyd, who formerly worked with our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE together for twenty five years up to their joint redundancy in January 2012, and in the past has often acted as an ‘exercise casualty’ for the Bolton MRT)
The entire Bolton MRT membership extends its sincere thanks to all at Go Outdoors, Wigan, (And their friends who also took part) for undertaking this fantastic fundraising venture to support Bolton MRT.
Keep watching our website for a formal recognition of this fantastic donation, when the team will be visiting the Go Outdoors, Wigan, store.
(On Boxing Day, December 26th 2013, this year, yet again, Go Outdoors, Wigan, has kindly invited the Bolton MRT to carry out a Festive collection for team funds at its store, with thanks to Store Manager John Harold)
