Apologies to those parties concerned for the short delay in announcing this, but on Thursday 10th October 2013, we took delivery of a further donation of Mountain Rescue jackets from our national body, Mountain Rescue England and Wales (MREW)
Mountain Rescue England and Wales in circa Autumn 2010, decided to purchase a jacket for all Mountain Rescue Team members in England and Wales, utilising national central funds and demonstrating central purchasing.
Most MRTs signed up to the purchase, with MREW agreeing to supply a fixed number for each team.
The jackets were supplied by Mountain Equipment, with two ‘models’ available, the Fitzroy men’s jacket and the Alpamayo women’s jacket, in a corporate MREW predominantly red colour with high visibility piping, MREW badge work on each sleeve and ‘MOUNTAIN RESCUE’ on a back panel.
In total the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team took delivery at the time of fifty three jackets of both models, and they were issued to all our team call out list membership. (Complimenting our other items of team personal issue kit)
The opportunity arose recently for teams to obtain a further number of jackets for their membership, from the same funding source and supplier, with the Bolton MRT taking up this very kind offer.
In total we received five Fitzroy men’s jackets and three Alpamayo women’s jackets, by way of this latest donation.
The team would like to once again express its sincere thanks to Neil Roden, MREW Assistant Treasurer and Procurement Officer for his major involvement in dealing with this national purchase utilising centrally held funds.
